Lebanon: Deliberate destruction or "collateral damage"? Israeli attacks on civilian infrastructure
This briefing summarizes Amnesty International's initial assessment and concerns on the massive destruction of civilian infrastructure in Lebanon that has taken place during the conflict. The organization calls for a comprehensive, independent and impartial inquiry to be conducted by the United Nations (UN) into violations of international humanitarian law by both sides in the conflict. The inquiry should examine in particular the impact of this conflict on the civilian population, and should be undertaken with a view to holding individuals responsible for crimes under international law and ensuring that full reparation is provided to the victims.
