The IDF's destruction of four high-rises in Gaza in the final days of a 50-day war between Israel and Hamas amount to war crimes that must be investigated, Amnesty International said on Monday.

Philip Luther, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Program said the buildings were destroyed on purpose and had no military justification.

Luther said that Israel's actions were a collective punishment against the citizens of Gaza, "meant to destroy their already precarious livelihoods."
