‘Pillar of Cloud’ and Wrecking Gaza

Using evidence drawn from the IDF’s own Twitter feed and public statements, along with their own on-site visitation, James Marc Leas and Theresa McDermott document how civilian infrastructure is targeted by Israeli military in Wrecking Gaza.

In the cases investigated, Israel’s destruction of civilian property appears to have provided no military advantage. Damage to civilian property was disproportionate and the IDF website admits that some of the attacks were in reprisal. In all of the cases reported here, interviewees reported that no Palestinian fighters were in the property bombed by Israeli forces. Consequently military necessity does not appear to be available. Further investigation is needed into the apparent violations. The International Criminal Court should conduct the investigation
