Palestinian Terrorism

 
 

Bombed BusSince the start of the Al-Aqsa Intifada in September 2000, hundreds of Israeli civilians were killed, thousands injured and many more were traumatized psychologically by attacks from armed Palestinian groups…

 

The organization of attacks in public places that are not a priori located in proximity to military targets, leaves no doubts as to the intention of targeting Israeli civilians and to hit as many of them as possible. Markets, leisure environments, universities, and public transport were the targets of repeated attacks. The attacks against Israeli civilians take place both in Israel and in the Occupied territories. However, the Geneva Conventions clearly indicate that "The civilian population as such, as well as individual civilians, shall not be the object of attack". And there can be no justification, either political such as "struggling against occupation" or military such as declaring "we have no tanks or aircraft to fight the Israelis with", for violence against civilians, even in the Occupied territories...

Although not a nation, the Palestinian Authority must respect the customary norms of International Humanitarian Law. Resolution 244 dated December 19, 1968 of the General Assembly of the United Nations states that governmental and non-governmental entities must not launch attacks against civilians. Among the civilians affected, the report shows that there is a significant proportion of women, a large percentage of young people, including children, and senior citizens. The poorest Israelis are the most exposed to the attacks. The victims of the armed Palestinian groups' attacks are therefore among the most vulnerable members of Israeli society. Neither are the health care professionals and the vehicles used to help the wounded or injured spared.
