Israeli Home Front Commander, Major-General Yair Golan has announced that in the event of war when chemical weapons may be used, Israel will send Israelis of potential chemical weapon target zones to the West Bank.
Israeli ultra Zionist news source, Arutz Sheva, reported that “Samaria is heavily dotted with Arab villages and cities and that a chemical attack on Samaria would necessarily hurt the Arabs too – a presumably unwanted outcome for Muslim aggressors”.
Israel has become well known for using human shields in war. The Israeli citizens of Ashkelon and Sderot have never been evacuated from the townships when Palestinian fighters in the Gaza have launched their crude rockets at them. This is despite knowing full well after years of experience that when Israel attacks the Gaza Strip, the Palestinians there are likely to retaliate with rocket strikes against Ashkelon and Sderot. This has provided the Israelis with an excuse to accuse the Palestinian fighters of deliberately attacking civilians which, in turn, has provided the Israelis with justifying their attacks against civilians in the Gaza.
During ground incursions into the Gaza Strip and elsewhere in the Occupied Territories Israeli soldiers have gained a notable reputation of using civilian individuals as human shields when attacking people’s homes and public buildings.
Using human shields is a war crime.
Where’s the outrage at this latest proposal to commit war crimes.
