ISRAEL GREEN-LIGHTED 'UNLAWFUL' KILLING OF UNARMED GAZA PROTESTERS, SAYS HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH

The Israeli army's decision to open fire on Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza, which left 17 people dead and hundreds of others wounded, was "calculated" and "unlawful," a human rights watchdog has said.

In a report following the deadly "Land Day" protests in Gaza on March 30, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said senior Israeli officials who called for live ammunition to be used against protesters who did not pose a serious threat are responsible for their deaths.

The "high number of deaths and injuries was the foreseeable consequence of granting soldiers leeway to use lethal force outside of life-threatening situations in violation of international norms," HRW said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Newsweek is reporting this, it means Israel really screwed up big time!
