Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Families under the rubble: Israeli attacks on inhabited homes

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 15/032/2014

Among the targets of Israeli air strikes during Operation Protective Edge in July and August 2014 were inhabited multi-storey family homes. In this report Amnesty International examines Israeli attacks carried out on inhabited civilian homes in the light of Israel’s obligations under international humanitarian law, specifically the rules on the conduct of hostilities. It does so by focusing on eight cases, in which targeted Israeli attacks resulted in the deaths of at least 111 people and destroyed civilian homes.
