UN commission finds evidence of war crimes by Israel, Hamas during 2014 Gaza war. (Haaretz).
An independent United Nations commission of inquiry on Monday released its report on Operation Protective Edge, finding evidence that both Israel and Hamas committed war crimes during the war in the Gaza Strip last summer and calling the devastation caused in the Palestinian territory "unprecedented."
The members of the commission, which was appointed by the UN Human Rights Council, hinted in their report that the upper levels of the Israeli political echelon were responsible for the policies that left to some of these war crimes.
“The extent of the devastation and human suffering in Gaza was unprecedented and will impact generations to come,” the chair of the commission, Justice Mary McGowan Davis told a press briefing on Monday. "There is also on-going fear in Israel among communities who come under regular threat.” Hmmmm.....Next time..."Messieurs les terroristes, tirez les premiers?"Read the full 'fairy tale' story here.
