Israeli Gaza Airstrikes Violated Laws of War
Israel committed premeditated aggression.
by Stephen Lendman
Human Rights Watch (HRW) said so. Rarely does HRW do the right thing. Exceptions prove the rule. Most often it's a reliable imperial partner.
Connections in high places and corporate funding keep it that way. Services rendered in return are expected. Conflicts of interest are rife.
HRW and likeminded sources followers rely on operate like their scoundrel media counterparts. They do it deceptively. They produce one-sided or quasi-real reports on issues mattering most.
Exceptions occur. Even then they fall far short. On February 12, HRW headlined "Israel: Gaza Airstrikes Violated Laws of War." More on its report below.
International laws of war are clear. They unambiguous. UN Charter provisions explain under what conditions attacking another nation is justified. No others apply.
