Gaza militants violated laws of war by launching hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians during last month’s fighting, Human Rights Watch said in a release Monday.I'm not sure this news is entirely worth admiration. That the Hamas waged war at all is abominable and against the beliefs we'd assume HRW holds dear. The number of Israelis who died was at about 7, and the "palestinians" were mainly terrorists described incorrectly as civilians, and the death toll for them wasn't particularly high either. So HRW hasn't exactly shown a willingness to be respectable to the Israeli side, but merely stooping to moral equations.
The Israeli military said 1,500 rockets were fired at Israel during the eight-day offensive against Gaza militants, including the first rockets from the Gaza Strip to strike the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas.
The rocket attacks killed three Israeli civilians and wounded dozens. Israeli assaults killed 169 Palestinians.
