The Israel Defense Forces violated the laws of war during Operation Pillar of Defense, NGO Human Rights Watch claimed in a scathing report published Tuesday.

“Israeli forces too often conducted airstrikes that killed Palestinian civilians and destroyed homes in Gaza without apparent legal justification,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.
