EN – Thousands of families have been destroyed. The dead will not return, now we must do everything to bring back the hostages. Over 100 civilians (according to estimates) were kidnapped from their beds and are held hostage in Gaza by blood-thirsty barbarians. Children are watching their mothers being raped, tortured, murdered.
We have to speak up. We have to bring the Israeli hostages back.
The Brussels Secular Jewish Community Centre (CCLJ) in collaboration with several Jewish and non-Jewish associations and NGOs will hold an emergency rally with EU/ NATO leaders.
The rally calls on the international community to put pressure for the immediate release of the Israelis kidnapped into Gaza, including babies, children, women, men, and elderly on Saturday 7 October.

Hostage taking of civilians and persons not taking or no longer taking part in the hostilities is prohibited in international humanitarian law (common article 3 to the Geneva Conventions as well as Article 34 of the fourth Geneva Convention and in both Additional Protocols to the Geneva Convention ) and is considered to be part of customary international humanitarian law. It is also considered a war crime
