UN Gaza Inquiry Finds Credible Allegations of War Crimes Committed in 2014 by both ISRAEL and Palestinian Armed Groups (OHCHR)

Digital Empire


GENEVA (22 June 2015): The United Nations Independent Commission of Inquiry on the 2014 Gaza conflict has gathered substantial information pointing to the possible commission of war crimes by both Israel and Palestinian armed groups.

“The extent of the devastation and human suffering in Gaza was unprecedented and will impact generations to come,” the chair of the commission, Justice Mary McGowan Davis told a press briefing today, adding that, “there is also on-going fear in Israel among communities who come under regular threat”.

The 2014 hostilities saw a huge increase in firepower used in Gaza, with more than 6,000 airstrikes by Israel and approximately 50,000 tank and artillery shells fired. In the 51 day operation, 1,462 Palestinian civilians were killed, a third of them children. Palestinian armed groups fired 4,881 rockets and 1,753 mortars towards Israel in July and August 2014, killing 6 civilians and injuring at least 1,600.

    1. I’m disappointed from the Israeli politics they adopt a stance more and more agressive and the hypocrisy rises when it comes to the israeli-palestinian conflict from the part of USA and allies

      1. Oh, yes, they work well together, the U.S. of f**king A. and the Israeli establishment. In fact, they are one and the same establishment. To make a distinction between them is to make a distinction without a difference. And they are the absolute masters of inverting the relationship between the real aggressor and the victim: you see, if the Israelis must murder, plunder and dispossess the Palestinians, its because they have to defend themselves against these “savages,” these subhumans, most of whom happen to be children, albeit the descendants of “terrorists.” No one that the Zio-Americans ever murdered did not deserve his or her fate, and always, but always, was it an act of self-defense. The culture of these international vultures is the height of murderous insanity, but an insanity that knows exactly what it is about.

        That anyone ever had to live through this kind of barbarity — and it is a worldwide phenomenon — is beyond belief, and yet there you have it. Don’t stop blogging. Every little bit that we can do to raise awareness, even if it only adds up to a single other individual, counts for something. It is the very least that we can and must do, to try to subvert the fascism that is all around us.

  1. On this planet, the real guilty are not never punished. When real guilty makes everything, they show the distortionist to the people with saying “hey! look at him! what a acrobasy! don’t look at reality!”
