Israel Massacres Gazans, Claims Self-Defense, Its High Court Agrees

• by Stephen Lendman

The toll keeps mounting, about 50 Palestinians near death, according to health officials. Gazans demonstrated against 11 years of suffocating/illegal blockade – the world community doing nothing to end it.

For weeks, Israel responded to demonstrators with overwhelming bloodshed, despite facing no threat.

Six human rights groups – Adalah, Al Mezan, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) Gisha, Hamoked, and Yesh Din – sued Israel for using lethal force against peacefully demonstrating Gazans.

Israel's High Court of Justice heard the case in late April – plaintiffs challenging the IDF's open-fire rules of engagement, calling for it to be struck down as unlawful.

Representing Adalah, attorney Suhad Bishara said "(t)he great majority of those shot were at a distance from the (border). There (was) systematic use of lethal fire with no justification."
