Human Rights Watch Libanonin pommituksista

Human Rights Watch on julkaissut raportin Israelin siviileihin kohdistamista pommituksista. Oleellisinta raportissa on, että HRW ei ole löytänyt tukea Israelin väitteille siitä, että Hizbollah käyttää siviiliväestöä suojakilpenään.
“Hezbollah fighters must not hide behind civilians – that’s an absolute – but the image that Israel has promoted of such shielding as the cause of so high a civilian death toll is wrong,” Roth said. “In the many cases of civilian deaths examined by Human Rights Watch, the location of Hezbollah troops and arms had nothing to do with the deaths because there was no Hezbollah around.”
