Israel, The Occupied West Bank And Gaza Strip, And The Palestinian Authority Territories

This report documents the use of force in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and northern Israel during the week of October 4-11 when hostilities broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces. The report is highly critical in its assessment of the Israel Defense Forces's (IDF) use of "live ammunition in an excessive or indiscriminate manner," citing among other infractions, "a pattern of IDF disregard for and targeting of Palestinian medical personnel and ambulances evacuating or treating injured civilians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip." The report also criticizes the Palestinian security forces for failing to "act consistently and effectively to prevent armed civilians from opening fire on IDF soldiers from positions where civilians were present."
