NEW REPORT~Israel Murdered 43 ½ Innocent Civilians Each Day

Israel Murdered 43 ½ Innocent Civilians Each Day

As reported I the Irish times, a new report just in states that the death toll for Israel’s 22 day genocide in Gaza came to a 1,434 with a staggering 960 innocent civilians. Translation, Israel was allowed by the International community to willfully murder 43 ½ innocent Palestinians each and every day of its 22 day holocaust in Gaza.

"Final Gaza toll includes 960 civilians, report shows
Israel's 22-day offensive in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip killed 1,434 people of whom the vast majority were civilians. According to a Palestinian human rights group, 960 civilians, 239 police officers and 235 fighters were killed by Israel during the onslaught.

"The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights' investigations reveal that throughout the course of the assault, Israeli Occupation Forces used excessive, indiscriminate force, in violation of the principle of distinction," the group said in a report (www.pchrgaza.org).

The principle of distinction "obliges all parties to the conflict to distinguish between combatants and non-combatants."

An Israeli military spokesman claimed the army had "made every effort to minimise harm to the civilian population" during the fighting. ( Yeah right mi arise!See my post about the Israeli IDF having a policy of killing children HERE and how they taught their soldiers to kill civilians HERE)

The group said it would publish a list of the identities of those killed next week and would post them on its website in Arabic, with an English version to follow.

"The Ministry of Health have also confirmed that a total of 5,303 Palestinians were injured in the assault, including 1,606 children and 828 women," it said.
It called for an international investigation into "crimes committed by the Israeli forces and Israel's conduct of hostilities" and "prosecution of all political and military officials" accused.

Israeli media have quoted officers as saying there was far less resistance from Islamist gunmen than they had expected." (Ok, so which is it then? Because I seem to notice almost all interviews with soldiers who are now worried about being charged with war crimes and they are pointing to how dangerous it was fighting HAMAS as their excuse for killing so many civilians. Hmmmmm, grasping at straws I’d say. GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES!! Throw them all in Jail for life)
