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."

Below is a list of family's the Ministry of Health says were targeted by Israeli shellings or airstrikes:

1 ) Israeli Deterrent Policy / Collective Punishment
28/07/2014 15:31
Israel deliberately targets families of known/suspected members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad thinking that it will deter them or punish them, "impose a cost". It's like Israeli professor's idea that raping the sisters or wives of militants will deter them. Or like destroying the houses of families of suspects. This policy of intentionally targeting civilians is clearly a war crime; it doesn't matter who their relatives are, non-combatants should not be targets. Time to go to the ICC.

You're a savage coward,Israel.In the eyes of a good,compassionate,tolerant(7 BILLION people)world(more of us than you Zionists)you're erasing YOURSELF & your right to "exist",by following Judeo-FASCISM.WHY?

If only the Allies had targeted the Nazi leaders at the start of the war... The 'Palestinians' elected Hamas. The 'Palestinians' have supported Hamas. Hamas is a criminal terrorist organization. Rockets and terrorist commando raids have come from Gaza. Israel is at war with Gaza. Non-combatants should head for the Egyptian border, anyone who stays behind should be prepared for whatever may happen. Hamas uses civilians as shields and places weapons in civilian locations. War crimes. Mel = nut.

David/usa is a typical example of an employee of the government propaganda mashine. And only one of thousands hired to spread the propaganda you are supposed to belive. . The same lies and single sided news you see in all mainstream media. USA is supporting, founding and a part of af the israhells genocide of Palestinians and guilty of multiple war crimes. Thousands of people are dying for your tax dollars If any of this is new to you then it's time you do your own research
