Amnesty International says the findings of a report published by the UN Commission of Inquiry which states that Israeli forces may have committed war crimes during protests in Gaza last year, including by deliberately firing on Palestinian civilians appeared to be wilful killings.

Deputy Middle East and North Africa Director at Amnesty International Saleh Higazi responding to the findings of a report published by the UN Commission of Inquiry yesterday.

Higazi says the findings echo Amnesty International’s own conclusions that many killings of Palestinian protesters by Israeli forces appeared to be willful constituting war crimes.

“The report paints a damning picture of Israeli forces who deliberately shot at children, health workers, journalists and people with disabilities, demonstrating a cruel and ruthless disregard for international humanitarian law.”

Higazi says more than 6,000 people suffered wounds from live ammunition placing an added burden on Gaza’s already severely strained health system and many were denied the opportunity to travel outside Gaza to receive the care they required.

“The UN must now follow through on its recommendations to gather information on alleged perpetrators that can be passed to national and international justice mechanisms, including the International Criminal Court. Those responsible for these deplorable crimes must not go unpunished.”

Higazi says the findings of the report must pave the way for justice for victims of war crimes, and break the long-standing cycle of impunity for serious violations of international law by Israeli forces in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
