BBC video report with drone footage of the aftermath of Israel’s 51 day war against Gaza. September 2014

Drone footage reveals the devastating destruction to Shuja’iyeh (Shejaia), a neighbourhood district in Gaza, the result of the Israeli assault that lasted 51 days. Between 8 July and 27 August 2014, Israel’s Operation Protective Edge bombardment killed at least 2,200 Palestinians (mostly civilians) along with 66 Israeli soldiers and 7 civilians in Israel. And according to the United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA), more than 300,000 Gazans had been sheltering in its schools and up to 500,000 people have been displaced by the conflict. The extensive destruction caused means that many Palestinians have no home to return to. Many faced a harsh winter in emergency shelters. Most still remain without adequate shelter today.

RT video report: ‘We are trained to not see Palestinians as humans’ – former IDF soldier

A video has emerged online showing Israeli police putting handcuffs on a Palestinian boy in the city of Hebron in the West Bank. The boy is mentally ill, but it didn’t prevent the soldiers from arresting him while blindfolded.

Between 500 and 700 Palestinian children are detained EVERY year by the IDF. Around 8,000 Palestinian children have been arrested and prosecuted in Israeli military courts in the last 14 years.
