Amnesty Report Angers Israel and Hamas

Ad Feedback

It's rare that Israel and Hamas ever agree on anything but both are denouncing a report from Amnesty International on the recent war in Gaza.

In the report, Amnesty charges Israeli forces with killing hundreds of Palestinian civilians and destroying thousands of Gaza Strip homes in the attacks.

They say that amounts to war crimes.

The group is also urging Hamas to stop rocket fire against Israeli civilians -- attacks they also describe as war crimes.

"The essential finding is that there is prima facie evidence that war crimes were committed on a large-scale by Israeli forces. They were also committed by Palestinian armed groups in the form of rockets fired into civilian population area in the south of Israel," the report said.

Amnesty also wants Israel to publicly pledge not to use artillery, white phosphorus and other, what they call "IM-Precise" weapons in densely populated areas.
