HRW: ‘Israel’ committed apparent war crimes in Gaza

Gaza (QNN)- Human Rights Watch on Tuesday said the occupation state carried out attacks that “apparently amount to war crimes” during an 11-day war in May against the besieged enclave.

The international human rights organization issued its conclusions after investigating three Israeli airstrikes that killed 62 Palestinian civilians. It said “there were no evident military targets in the vicinity” of the attacks.

“Israeli forces carried out attacks in Gaza in May that devastated entire families without any apparent military target nearby,” said Gerry Simpson, associated crisis and conflict director at HRW on the organization’s website.

He said Israel’s “consistent unwillingness to seriously investigate alleged war crimes” underscored the importance of an ongoing investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The occupation state carried out an 11-day war on Gaza, killing some 260 people, including at least 67 children and 39 women.
