List of families targeted by Israeli shellings, airstrikes

July 28, 2014 12:31 P.M. (Updated: July 30, 2014 4:23 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have repeatedly struck family homes throughout its assault on Gaza, and the Ministry of Health calculates that over 50 families have been targeted.

Airstrikes and shellings have targeted 52 families and killed 285 members of those families since the beginning of the offensive, according to the ministry.

Human Rights Watch said in a July 20 report that various Israeli attacks on civilian targets throughout the conflict were "apparent violations of the laws of war."

HRW found during an investigation that Israel had targeted one family who had relatives active in the Islamic Jihad movement, even though no one living in the house was a part of the movement. The rights group found no evidence the home was being used for military purposes.

The Israeli strike killed five members of the family, the HRW report said.

"Israeli forces' failure to direct attacks at a military target violates the laws of war. Israeli forces may also have knowingly or recklessly attacked people who were clearly civilians, such as young boys, and civilian structures, including a hospital -- laws-of-war violations that are indicative of war crimes."
