Guardian Gaza War Crimes Investigation
The Guardian is not the Washington Post or the New York Times, it has some freedom to report and comment. Nevertheless it is under the same yoke (as I am) and all these disclosures are designed to lead to Israel ‘taking care of its own’ to ‘Jews being tried by Jews’ and not by the UN.
It all could lead to a changing of consciousness within the Israeli military, except that the new government that is forming is going to give voice to extremists. Leaving the hooplala as a time buyer or a smokescreen
See PressTVs report today:
Extremists stir bloody clashes in Israel

Israeli police forces clashed with demonstrators in the town of Umm al-Fahm.
At least 28 people have been wounded in fierce clashes with Israeli police forces in the northern Israeli town of Umm al-Fahm.
The city’s residents had earlier asked the authorities to ban the march that they viewed as a provocative act in a city where nearly all of whose population are indigenous Palestinians. The High Court, however, allowed the far-rightists to hold the rally and 2,500 police officers were deployed to Umm al-Fahm to protect the ralliers.
Also Reported earlier by Mondoweiss:
It hasn’t taken long for the Lieberman ascendancy to pay dividends. Right-wing Jewish activists descended on Umm al-Fahm, the largest Palestinian city inside Israel, today in to carry out a provocative march to “demand loyalty”
Anyway I digressed, the Guardian videos on Israeli war crimes in Gaza:
Part 3 of 3 deals with the drones targeting civilians
Hermes 450 drone is workhorse for Israeli Defence Forces – Craft can take off from short runways or can be fired into air from catapult
Palestinians claim children were used as human shields and hospitals targeted during 23-day conflict
The Guardian gathered testimony of missile attacks by Israeli drones on clearly distinguishable civilian targets. In one case a family of six was killed when a missile hit the courtyard of their house. Israel has not admitted to the use of More.. drones but military experts say their optical equipment is good enough to clearly identify individual items of clothing worn by targets.
Three teenage boys say they were made to kneel in front of tanks to deter Hamas attacks.
Israeli military says medical staff ‘take the risk upon themselves’.
