On War Crimes: UN Says 11+ Men Were Murdered By The IDF In Front Of Family Members

A terrifying report published by the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner OHCHR titled ‘Unlawful killings in Gaza City‘ published on December 20 says that news of the Israeli Defense Forces IDF has “[executed] at least 11 unarmed Palestinian men in front of their family members in Al Remal neighborhood in Gaza city.” The UN office called for an investigation into the incident.

The horrendous incident that the UN office in Occupied Palestinian Territory described as an alarming war crime that comes in the wake of the intentional systematic targeting of innocent civilians in Gaza. The title of the report ‘Unlawful Killings’ implies that there is such thing as ‘lawful killings’ in Gaza by the IDF. The incidents, crowned by the one in the report in question speak for the extremely violent, even sadistic means the IDF uses.

Reading such a report, begs the question: what could the IDF gain from executing men in cold blood in front of their family members? Moreover, how is the world planning to deal with the trauma of children who watched their fathers being exterminated?

These questions come to light with a report by UNICEF Geneva Palais that says “Gaza is the world’s most dangerous place to be a child.” The press release took place after the UN reported the story of 13-year-old Dina, the martyred child who dreamt of becoming a lawyer had her house completely destroyed, she was injured, had her leg amputated and lost both parents. The UNICEF Spokesperson James Elder said on December 19 at a press briefing, touched by Dina’s story “Where do children and their families go? They are not safe in hospitals. They are not safe in shelters. And they are certainly not safe in the so-called ‘safe’ zones… An immediate and long-lasting humanitarian ceasefire is the only way to end the killing and injuring of children, and child deaths from disease, and enable the urgent delivery of desperately needed lifesaving aid.”
