    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? Really? An organization that allows despots murders and thugs run human rights committees? An organization that has failed to do anything about troops under its flag murdering raping and prostituting those they were supposed to protect? An organization that has systematically lied about Israel for 50 years?

    LOL.

    Where are all the UN findings about the disgusting terrorist attacks by terrorists on the civilian population of Israel?

    Where are the steps taken to prosecute the planners? Why aren't the leaders of Hezbollah and Hamas dragged out and charged for attacks on Israeli civilians and for using their civilian populations as shields.

    Never mind... rhetorical question.

    Now STFU.

    Which terrorist attack?

    These findings were about the Israeli terrorist attacks against the captive civilian population of Gaza.

    From 5 March 1948 to 9 January 2009 the United Nations Security Council has called on Israel to conform to the same moral standards as the rest of the world.

    In virtually every case Israel, with the full backing of the US government, has refused to do so. Any other country on the planet would have faced boycotts, divestment, and sanctions decades ago.

    Israel's time is SWIFTly approaching.
