Human Rights Watch: apparent war crimes by Israel during May attack on Gaza

Human Rights Watch investigated several Israeli attacks that resulted in particularly high numbers of civilian casualties – with no evident military target – and determined that the incidents may have been war crimes. Other Israeli attacks during the conflict were also likely unlawful.

False claims against Syria lay the groundwork to destroy more Israeli targets

In 2007 the IAEA promoted falsehoods about Israel’s bombing of a supposed nuclear reactor in Syria, burying evidence that the site was NOT a reactor. Claims that a sarin gas attack last April was carried out by the Assad regime are similarly dubious. Just as the false “WMD” claims against Iraq were used to destroy Iraq, these claims seem aimed at taking down two more of Israel’s targets: Syria and Iran.
