Israel deliberately destroyed Gaza

Israel deliberately destroyed Gaza 13 May 2010 Human Rights Watch says it has proof Israeli soldiers deliberately destroyed Palestinian homes and buildings during the 2008-09 assault on Gaza. HRW, in its 116-page report, 'I Lost Everything': Israel's Unlawful Destruction of Property in the Gaza Conflict, says it has documented 12 separate cases of such during the 22-day "Operation Cast Lead". The report, released Thursday, said there is evidence that Israeli forces destroyed civilian property, including homes, factories, farms, and greenhouses, in areas under their control although there was no fighting in that area or the fighting had stopped.
