HRW Says Palestinians did War Crimes
By Micah Halpern
Thursday August 12, 2021
Human Rights Watch announced that during the recent war between Israel and Hamas, Gazans committed war crimes.
The group was referring to the deadly rockets fired into Israel by Palestinians, rockets that led to the deaths of 12 Israeli and injury to tens of others.
The human rights group also pointed out that rockets that misfired or that fell short of their intended targets within Israel, also killed or wounded "an undetermined number of Palestinians in Gaza". At least seven Palestinian civilians were reported killed by their rockets.
This is newsworthy.
Traditionally Human Rights Watch has been extremely critical of Israel and extremely wary of saying anything negative against Palestinians.
Because they were so biased, their credibility was in serious question.
Have they finally seen the light of truthful reporting – it is way too soon to tell.
