ISRAEL/OCCUPIED PALASTINIAN TERRITORIES CIVILIAN KILLING MUST STOP


Israeli military air strikes and artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip are being carried out with reckless disregard for civilian life, Amnesty International said today.

‘Israeli military attacks over the past few days have killed more than 75 Palestinians in Gaza, including at least 10 children, and other unarmed civilian bystanders not involved in the confrontations’ said Malcolm Smart, director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme. ‘Israel has a legal obligation to protect the civilian population of Gaza. Such attacks are disproportionate and go beyond lawful measures which Israeli forces may take in response to rocket attacks by Palestinian armed groups."

Amnesty International called again on Palestinian armed groups to immediately cease firing rockets at towns and villages in southern Israel.
