Israeli forces target paramedics at Gaza protest (days after ‘NYT’ publishes ‘war crime’ report on killing of a medic)

Gaza 4 Jan – Press Release — On Friday evening, 04 January 2019, Israeli forces wounded 46 Civilians, including 7 Children, 4 Journalists and 6 Paramedics, in an excessive use of force against the peaceful demonstrators in the eastern Gaza Strip though the demonstrations have scaled down for the tenth week consecutively and despite absence of most means usually used during the demonstrations since the beginning of the Return and Breaking the Siege March 9 months ago.

According to observations by PCHR’s fieldworkers, Though the demonstrators were around between tens and hundreds of meters away from the border fence, the Israeli forces who stationed in prone positions and in military jeeps along the fence continued to use excessive force against the demonstrators by opening fire and firing teargas canisters at them, without the latter posing any imminent threat or danger to the life of soldiers … On this Friday, the Israeli forces have increasingly targeted the medical personnel in the field and wounded 6 of them, including one who was hit with a teargas canister while he was in an ambulance transferring one of those wounded in eastern Rafah City. Moreover, the Israeli forces fired a barrage of teargas canisters near where ambulances were parked in Khan Younis….

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These...are war crimes, and there is no other way to say this, than to call it what it is.

But the problem, for Israel's police and IDF, is saying every time they injure or kill a Palestinian, is that whenever they use "they made us do it" defense, it crumbles under the force of rational observation.
