17.08.2009 - Gaza - Democracy Now!

Human Rights Watch released a report last week detailing new evidence of possible Israeli war crimes committed during last winter”s Operation Cast Lead in Gaza that left over 1400 Palestinians dead. The report says Israeli soldiers unlawfully shot and killed at least 11 Palestinian civilians, including 5 women and 4 children, who were in groups waving white flags to make clear that they were civilians and not combatants.
