Amnesty International: Israel Often Uses Excessive Force, Killed 55 Palestinians in 2011
Haaretz reported today that the Amnesty International 2012 Annual Report for 2011 was released on Wednesday, and detailed violations of human rights worldwide. Among other things, the report is highly critical of Israeli policies toward the Palestinians, charging that the Israel Defense Forces frequently use excessive, sometimes lethal, force against demonstrators. In 2011, the IDF killed 55 Palestinian civilians in the West Bank and Gaza, including 11 children, the report said.
The report charges that Israeli authorities are prolonging the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip with the continued implementation of the blockade.
