A New York-based human rights group says the IDF's artillery shelling into crowded Gaza areas should be considered indiscriminate attacks. Human Rights Watch said Friday Israel sometimes fires 155-milimeter artillery shells at gunmen, who often operate in crowded areas. A military analyst with the group, Marc Garlasco, said that the shells can kill people up to 150 meters away. Garlasco said that means they kill indiscriminately.
