    3. Attacks by Israeli forces on government buildings and persons of the Gaza authorities, including police

    32. Israeli armed forces launched numerous attacks against buildings and persons of the Gaza
    authorities. As far as attacks on buildings are concerned, the Mission examined the Israeli strikes
    against the Palestinian Legislative Council and the Gaza main prison (Chapter VII). Both
    buildings were destroyed to an extent that puts them out of use. Statements by Israeli
    Government and armed forces representatives justified the attacks arguing that political and
    administrative institutions in Gaza are part of the “Hamas terrorist infrastructure”. The Mission
    rejects this position. It finds that there is no evidence that the Legislative Council building and
    the Gaza main prison made an effective contribution to military action. On the information
    available to it, the Mission finds that the attacks on these buildings constituted deliberate attacks
    on civilian objects in violation of the rule of customary international humanitarian law whereby
    attacks must be strictly limited to military objectives. These facts further indicate the
    commission of the grave breach of extensive destruction of property, not justified by military
    necessity and carried out unlawfully and wantonly.

    7. Deliberate attacks against the civilian population

    43. The Mission investigated eleven incidents in which Israeli forces launched direct attacks
    against civilians with lethal outcome (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.

    44. These incidents indicate that the instructions given to the Israeli forces moving into Gaza
    provided for a low threshold for the use of lethal fire against the civilian population. The Mission
    found strong corroboration of this trend emerging from its fact-finding in the testimonies of
    Israeli soldiers collected in two publications it reviewed.

    45. The Mission further examined an incident in which a mosque was targeted with a missile during the early evening prayer, resulting in the death of fifteen, and an attack with flechette munitions on a crowd of family and neighbours at a condolence tent, killing five. The Mission finds that both attacks constitute intentional attacks against the civilian population and civilian objects.

    46. From the facts ascertained in all the above cases, the Mission finds that the conduct of the Israeli armed forces constitute grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention in respect of wilful killings and wilfully causing great suffering to protected persons and as such give rise to individual criminal responsibility. It also finds that the direct targeting and arbitrary killing of Palestinian civilians is a violation of the right to life.

    47. The last incident concerns the launch of a bomb on a house resulting in the killing of 22
    family members. Israel’s position in this case is that there was an “operational error” and that the
    intended target was a neighbouring house storing weapons. On the basis of its investigation, the
    Mission expresses significant doubts about the Israeli authorities’ account of the incident. The
    Mission concludes that, if indeed a mistake was made, there could not be said to be a case of
    wilful killing. State responsibility of Israel for an internationally wrongful act, however, would
    remain.

    The UN that has Cuba, Egypt, Jordan, Russia, China and Saudi Arabia, which beheaded 6 people in one month, last year, on its UN Human Rights Council.

    "The southern command military court convicted two Israeli soldiers on Sunday of using human shields during Operation Cast Lead, Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, in the winter of 2008-2009.

    "The soldiers were convicted of offenses including inappropriate behavior and overstepping authority for ordering an 11-year-old Palestinian to search bags suspected to have been booby trapped.

    "The conviction is the first such conviction for what is termed in the Israel Defense Forces 'neighbor procedure' – the use of human shields during searches and pursuits, which has been outlawed."

    Still, no convictions of your friends in Hezballah for the murder of 300 Marines in Beirut, Georgie.

    Georgie, the total fraud.
