Nearly Half of Palestinians Killed in Gaza War Were Armed, Israeli Report Finds
By JNS June 16, 2015
“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.” (Psalm 12:22)
A new Israeli Foreign Ministry report on last summer’s Operation Protective Edge found that nearly half (44 percent) of the 2,125 Palestinians killed were confirmed to have been armed members of Hamas or other terrorist organizations.
The 277-page report, titled “The 2014 Gaza Conflict: Factual and Legal Aspects” and published Monday, was formulated by a team of experts from Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office, Foreign Ministry, Justice Ministry, and Military Advocate General’s office.
The findings were released ahead of a United Nations Human Rights Council report on the Gaza war. The U.N. report is scheduled to be published this week and is expected to be disproportionately critical of Israel.
The Israeli report found that Hamas intentionally and strategically attacked from within civilian areas and used civilians as shields for military targets, thus committing war crimes.

musicman: Thank you for the welcome message. When I read that verse it made me think of the verse "Perservere for His Names sake..." I have always been inspired by that Verse.
