UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay alarmed at the Israeli military operations resulting in the killing of Palestinian civilians in #Gaza, as well as the indiscriminate firing of rockets from Gaza into #Israel:

“I urge all sides to steadfastly respect their obligations under international #HumanRights law and international humanitarian law to protect civilians,” Pillay says.

Pillay is deeply concerned about the prospect of a ground offensive and strongly echoes the UN Secretary-General’s call for a ceasefire.

“I have been to Gaza and I have been to Sderot myself and have seen how traumatic these air strikes and rocket attacks are on civilians, especially children. They must stop,” Pillay warns.

+Jim Andrews I agree. But then HAMAS is a terrorist organisation which doesn't listen to the UN anyway. And do you really believe that a Islamic nation would bring HAMAS to justice? No, it'll have to be Israel, won't it?

#Afghanistan: Civilian casualties rose by 24 percent in the first six months of 2014, with ground combat among parties now killing and injuring more Afghan civilians than improvised explosive devices (IEDs), leading to violations of international humanitarian law which may amount to war crimes:

“In 2014, the fight is increasingly taking place in communities, public places and near the homes of ordinary Afghans, with death and injury to women and children in a continued disturbing upward spiral,” Director of Human Rights for UNAMA Georgette Gagnon says.
