    10. The use of Palestinian civilians as human shields

    55. The Mission investigated four incidents in which Israeli forces coerced Palestinian civilian
    men at gun point to take part in house searches during the military operations (Chapter XIV).
    The Palestinian men were blindfolded and handcuffed as they were forced to enter houses ahead
    of the Israeli soldiers. In one of the incidents, Israeli forces repeatedly forced a man to enter a
    house in which Palestinian combatants were hiding. Published testimonies of Israeli soldiers who
    took part in the military operations confirm the continued use of this practice, in spite of clear
    orders from Israel’s High Court to the armed forces to put an end to it and repeated public
    assurances from the armed forces that the practice had been discontinued. The Mission
    concludes that this practice amounts to the use of Palestinian civilians as human shields and is
    therefore prohibited by international humanitarian law. It puts the right to life of the civilians at
    risk in an arbitrary and unlawful manner and constitutes cruel and inhuman treatment. The use of
    human shields also is a war crime.
    The Palestinian men used as human shields were questioned
    under threat of death or injury to extract information about Hamas, Palestinian combatants and
    tunnels. This constitutes a further violation of international humanitarian law.

    (Chapter XI). The cases examined in this part of the report
    are, with one exception, all cases in which the facts indicate no justifiable military objective
    pursued by the attack. The first two incidents are attacks against houses in the Samouni
    neighbourhood south of Gaza City, including the shelling of a house in which Palestinian
    civilians had been forced to assemble by the Israeli forces. The following group of seven
    incidents concern the shooting of civilians while they were trying to leave their homes to walk to
    a safer place, waving white flags and, in some of the cases, following an injunction from the
    Israeli forces to do so. The facts gathered by the Mission indicate that all the attacks occurred
    under circumstances in which the Israeli forces were in control of the area and had previously
    entered into contact with or at least observed the persons they subsequently attacked, so that they
    must have been aware of their civilian status. In the majority of these incidents, the consequences

    of the Israeli attacks against civilians were aggravated by their subsequent refusal to allow the
    evacuation of the wounded or to permit access to ambulances.

    Anything in it about Saudi Arabia, a member of the UNHRC, beheading 6 people in one month, last year and Egypt, another member, being the center of female genital mutilation?

    Also, anything about Muslims' ongoing genocide of 4 million people in Darfur and southern Sudan?

    Get back to us, ok?

    Seeing as it's titled 'HUMAN RIGHTS IN PALESTINE AND OTHER OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES', asking about Egypt and Saudi Arabia pretty much proves that you're retarded.

    Try looking for UN Human Rights reports on those areas if you want reports on those areas, you fucking retard.

    You don't open a book on automotive maintenance and demand it tell you how to re-shingle your roof.

    You must be the retarded one, since there is no country called Palestine, nor, any occupation.

    The human rights of Pallies are denied by their own govt, dimwit...

    Once again you prove yourself an idiot.

    Where did I claim there was a nation called Palestine?

    Of course, that you speak of a government means you recognize it as a State. Hence you either view it as a legislative district within another nation or consider it a sovereign nation.

    There is no legal or political entity called Palestine, so, who's the idiot, again? (That would be you)
