Israeli drones killed civilians in Gaza

Israeli attacks with guided missiles fired from aerial drones killed civilians during the recent Gaza fighting in violation of the laws of war, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. The attacks with one of the most precise weapons in Israel’s arsenal killed civilians who were not taking part in hostilities and were far from any fighting.

“The 39-page report, “Precisely Wrong: Gaza Civilians Killed by Israeli Drone-Launched Missiles,” details six incidents resulting in 29 civilian deaths, among them eight children. Human Rights Watch found that Israeli forces failed to take all feasible precautions to verify that these targets were combatants, as required by the laws of war, or that they failed to distinguish between combatants and civilians. Israeli and Palestinian human rights groups have reported a total of 42 drone attacks that killed civilians, 87 in all, during the fighting in December 2008 and January 2009.

“Drone operators can clearly see their targets on the ground and also divert their missiles after launch,” said Marc Garlasco, senior military analyst at Human Rights Watch and co-author of the report. “Given these capabilities, Israel needs to explain why these civilian deaths took place.” More …

“On December 29, the Israeli military struck a truck that it said was transporting Grad rockets, killing nine civilians. The military released video footage of the attack to support its case, but the video raises serious doubts that the target constituted a military objective – doubts that should have guided the drone operator to hold fire. The alleged rockets, the military later admitted, proved to be oxygen canisters.” More …

Israeli Tank Fire Kills Three Sisters and a Cousin

Israel: Murder of four teenage girls was “reasonable”

Israeli tanks fired two shells into a Palestinian doctor’s house in Gaza killing three of his daughters—aged 13 to 19—and his niece, 17, wounding another daughter.


Israel continues to exercise its right to murder Palestinian children as the ‘Pirates of Davos’ applaud.

“Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish is a Gazan and a doctor who has devoted his life to medicine and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.” A report said.

The devastated Palestinian father said: “I hope that my children will be the last price.”

The Israeli military called the coldblooded murder “reasonable.”

Turkish PM Shouts at Israeli Chief Terrorist

Posted by terres on January 30, 2009

“I find it very sad that people applaud what you have said because many people have been killed”

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan stormed out of an angry debate on the Gaza war with Israel’s President and Chief Terrorist Shimon Peres at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday.

Erdogan complained that his comments on the conflict were cut short and walked off the stage in front of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other panel members.

“I do not think I will be coming back to Davos after this because you do not let me speak,” the prime minister shouted as he left, though he said later he could reconsider.

Erdogan criticized the audience of international officials and corporate chiefs for applauding Peres’s emotional defense of Israel’s offensive in Gaza, which left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead and nearly 6,000 others injured.

“I find it very sad that people applaud what you have said because many people have been killed,” he shouted at Peres.
