There is evidence that Israel committed crimes against humanity in responding to 2018 protests in Gaza, as snipers targeted people clearly identifiable as children, health workers and journalists, according to a United Nations report.
“Israeli soldiers committed violations of international human rights and humanitarian law. Some of those violations may constitute war crimes or crimes against humanity,” the chair of the UN Independent Commission of Inquiry on the protests in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Santiago Canton, said in a statement on Thursday.
In response, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz called the report “false and biased”.
The UN believes it has identified some of the Israeli snipers responsible for the killings, information that could be passed on to International Criminal Court.
