Human rights organizations in a letter to the Defense Minister, the Military Advocate General, and the Attorney General: deliberate attacks against civilians and civilian property in the Gaza Strip constitute a grave breach of international humanitarian law

Following the military's warnings to the residents of the northern Gaza Strip to evacuate their homes before an airstrike on the area, HaMoked together with other human rights organizations working in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, sent a joint letter to the Defense Minister, the Military Advocate General, and the Attorney General.

The organizations stressed that the distribution of leaflets and issuance of prior warning do not render every military action in the area lawful under international humanitarian law, and alerted that airstrikes on inhabited areas cause massive casualties and extensive damage to civilian property and infrastructure.
