The UN Independent Commission of Inquiry on the 2018 Gaza protest faulted Israel over the deadly repression of the demonstrations in the Gaza strip in 2018, during a press conference in Geneva on Thursday.

According to the Commission, there are “reasonable grounds to believe that Israeli security forces committed serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.”

“We call on Israel to conduct meaningful investigations into these serious violations and to provide timely justice and reparations for those killed and injured,” said commission Chair Santiago Canto.

The commission’s findings show that 6,106 Palestinians were injured with live ammunition and 3,098 by bullet fragmentation, rubber-coated bullets or hits from tear gas canisters.

“We’re saying that they have intentionally shot children, they’ve intentionally shot people with disabilities, they’ve intentionally shot journalists,” said commission member Sara Hossain.

Hossain disagreed with the characterization of all protesters as “violent” saying: “The vast majority of demonstrators were not involved in any form of violence. There were women and children present, there were people having poetry readings, playing music, waving flags.”

In total, 325 interviews were conducted with victims, witnesses and sources. The Commission will present to the Human Rights Council a fuller report with the legal analysis on 18 March 2019 in Geneva.

The definition of war crimes by the Oxford dictionary of law 5th edition 2003.

“Any violation of the laws or customs of war amounting to a criminal act. According to the charter of the Nuremburg international military tribunal of 1946, war crimes include murder, ill treatment or deportation of civilian populations, murder or ill treatment of prisoners of war, killing hostages, plundering property and wanton destruction of population centres or devastation that is not justified by military necessity.”

Yep Israel qualifies on all counts of commiting war crimes. And to think some sick f***ks invest in this murderous regime.

Anybody who invests in this doomed regime should be tried as a war criminal too and their assets stripped and distributed amongst the Palestinians.

And still the world procrastinates about dismantling the racist zionist regime, in spite of overwhelming evidence of genocide,murder and land theft from the Palestinian people.
We should all take a leaf from Irelands book and boycott Israeli goods and demand regime change untill they end their sick murderous ways.

Actually Western civilization was created by Christianity, specifically the Catholic Church. Think about that the next time you decide to trash GOD.

Now, rabbi drewzif, whatabout the 120,000 Iranians cod-bloodily executed by your regime? Add all who disappeared, dying under the tortures of your Basij-Gestapo and your terrorist proxies…/…

…/… your regime has killed way much more people than Israel even if I count the IDF-infliged fatalities during wars while I rule out the Iran-Iraq one, so do I about oppression on Kurds or Christians you don’t brag about.

Hey, with the products Israeli defense sector proposes and as such prices, it’s jackpot for investors. BDS is so succesful that their economy has doubled and foreign investments have tripled.

Heh Heh you know you’re winning when your quotes from the Oxford dictionary of law concerning the definition of war crimes ( which Israel qualifies for in spades) is taken down. Something tells me our mossad friends are busy tonight trying to hide the truth. ROFL 🙂 🙂 🙂
