The UN analyzed six Israeli bombings in the Gaza Strip, estimating that the Jewish state may have violated international law. She says that, when systematic and widespread, attacks against civilians can involve crimes against humanity.

In a report published Wednesday by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, bombings on homes, a school, refugee camps and a market between last October and December are analyzed. “The requirement to choose means and methods of warfare that avoid or at least minimize civilian damage appears to have been violated,” says High Commissioner Volker Türk.

The UN report suggests the possible “involvement of crimes against humanity”. He speaks of possible war crimes, as do those of Hamas and other Palestinian groups.

Last week, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry affirmed that Israel had perpetrated crimes against humanity. She accused Palestinian groups of war crimes.
