Amnesty Intl. Calls Israeli Attacks On Gaza Homes War Crimes
Israel and a monitoring group that's considered pro-Israel immediately criticized Amnesty International's report as flawed.By Cliff Judy | November 5, 2014
Human rights organization Amnesty International says Israel committed war crimes during its 50-day war in Gaza by knowingly bombing homes with civilians inside.
The group's 50-page report released late Tuesday profiles eight air strikes from late July to late August. The report claims those attacks killed 104 people, including 62 children, in what an Amnesty International official called "callous indifference" to the damage caused.
The nearly two-month conflict between Israel and Hamas killed more than 2,100 Palestinians and 72 Israelis. Most of the Palestinians were civilians while all but six Israelis were soldiers. (Video via Al Jazeera)
