UN Secretary General Accuses Israel of Violating International Humanitarian Law

Wednesday, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon accused Israel of violating “international humanitarian law” in their fight against Hamas in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge.

Ban said, “The fighting has raised difficult questions of proportionality, attacks on civilians and whether Israel abided by international humanitarian law.” 

“A suspicion of armed activity does not justify the risk of hundreds of thousands of civilians,” Ban added.
