The protest in Gaza in support of a Right of Return for Palestinian refugees has been ongoing for close to one year now. During that time, approximately 200 unarmed protesters were shot dead by Israeli snipers. Almost 10,000 others were injured. Some of those were deliberately targeted by snipers, whilst others suffered injuries from ricochets or tear gas.
35 of the dead were children. 940 other children sustained gunshot injuries, many of which left them with permanent physical disabilities, including amputated limbs. Members of the press were gunned down, as were medical personnel, all clearly marked as such. Some of those attending the protests were disabled, with one man in a wheelchair targeted. None of the victims posed a threat to either Israel or the armed thugs that it employs to kill and maim Palestinian civilians.
On 28th February, a United Nations investigative panel found Israel to be guilty of crimes against humanity for its conduct during the Great March of Return protests in Gaza. Investigators have called for those responsible to be arrested and tried. Israel has refused to cooperate with the inquiry and has rubbished the findings. It would appear that the rogue Zionist state deems itself to be above international law. It remains to be seen what action, if any, the United Nations will now take to bring the war criminals of Israel to account for their horrific behaviour. It should be noted that the actions of Israeli snipers in Gaza is reminiscent of that of Nazi guards in the concentration camps of the Second World War, when Jewish prisoners were the victims.
The following video report gives us a first-hand look at the UN investigators and their conclusions.
