Israeli troops 'kill Palestinians with impunity'

JERUSALEM (AFP) – The Israeli military has failed to investigate its forces for killing dozens of Palestinian civilians in recent years, spawning a climate of impunity, a human rights group said on Tuesday.

"Soldiers who kill Palestinians in the occupied territories are almost never held accountable, even if the circumstances raise a grave suspicion that they acted criminally," the Israeli group B'Tselem said.

"This policy permits soldiers and officers to act in violation of the law, encourages a trigger-happy attitude and shows a flagrant disregard for human life," it added.

B'Tselem said that from 2006 to 2009 the military had opened investigations into just 23 of 148 cases submitted by the group. The cases concern the killing of 288 civilians.

Another 41 of the cases were dismissed, while the military has yet to issue any decision on the remaining 84. No criminal charges have been brought in any of the cases, B'Tselem said.

During the period in question Israeli troops killed 1,510 Palestinians, including 617 civilians, the group said.

The figures do not include the December 2008 to January 2009 war in Gaza, in which more than 1,400 Palestinians were killed.

The Israeli military confirmed it had investigated some of the cases mentioned in the report and said the remainder were "still under examination in accordance with standard investigative policies."

B'Tselem said the problem was in part due to the official classification of the situation in the occupied territories as an "armed conflict" despite the fact that there has been little violence in the West Bank in recent years.

The classification dates back to the 2000 outbreak of the Palestinian intifada. The initial years of the uprising saw scores of suicide bombings in Israel and massive military operations across the West Bank and Gaza.

Whatever happened to the Goldstone Report?

Being a South African Jew, branding him an "anti-semite" couldn't be viable, so he's a "self-hater" instead.

if Israel does not halt it's war crimes and genocide against the palestinians, then all Israeli's should be wiped out as they are acting in a way alien to humanity, "Gods chosen people" their claim. maybe Hitler was right as they are a malevolant specimen that is always in the right no matter what, they have made war against all of their neighbours and are commiting genocide against Gazans, I think maybe the reason is it is that the people in Gaza live in the land that was originally called Philistea, and the Zionist Jew holds a grudge for eternity so Biblical hatred and bigotry ensues just to satisfy the Zionist Jew. hopefully the non malevolent Jews will move out of Israel before that land is destroyed and all the filth are exterminated.
