Rights group has accused the Israeli judiciary of protecting Israeli soldiers and settlers who commit crimes against Palestinians.
Al-Mezan Centre for Human Rights explained that the Central Court in Beersheba has rejected a lawsuit filed against the Israeli army following the shelling of Nasser abu-Sa’eed house in 2010, in which his wife was killed and others were and injured.
According to a report issued by the centre yesterday, the Israeli authorities considered the incident “a combat operation, according to the first section of the Law of Damages, and therefore the state is not responsible for the damages caused.”
The centre stressed that the international community is also responsible, particularly countries who signed the Fourth Geneva Convention, under Common Article Number 1.
It stated that this article sets up that all signatories must respect and ensure others comply with the terms of the treaty at all times.
Several Palestinian, regional and international rights groups and even official bodies, including UN institutions have found that Israel protects its criminals, who carry out crimes against Palestinians, but they international community does not care about them.
