Israel’s ‘Shocking Disregard’ for Palestinian Civilians May Be a War Crime, Human Rights Group Says
The Israeli government has engaged in a pattern of deadly attacks against residential homes in Gaza, carrying out bombing raids without giving the innocent men, women, and children inside any time to escape, Amnesty International charged on Monday.
The strikes, which show a “shocking disregard” for Palestinian civilians, “may amount to war crimes or crimes against humanity,” the human rights group said.
At least 200 Palestinians have died, including 61 children and 36 women, according to Gaza health authorities. Ten Israelis have also been killed by indiscriminate rocket fire, prompting widespread criticism that the Israeli response has been disproportionate.
