Apparent war crimes committed during 11-day Israel-Gaza conflict, Human Rights Watch says, urging international probe

Human Rights Watch, an international NGO, has called on the International Criminal Court to launch an inquiry into apparent war crimes committed by Israeli and Palestinian armed forces during the 11-day war in May.

On Tuesday, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said that forces from Israel and Palestine carried out attacks during the May 2021 conflict that violated the laws of war and “apparently amount to war crimes.”

In their report, which brings together data from 30 interviews with eyewitnesses of Israeli attacks, video footage, satellite imagery and their observations from site visits in Gaza, HRW delivered a damning inditement of Israeli conduct during the conflict. The organization said that a more in-depth assessment of Palestinian attacks is still to come.
