In it's 2005 report released this week, Amnesty international accuses Israel of perpetrating a flurry of war crimes in the occupied palestinian territories. In 2004, the israeli army killed at least 700 palestinians, 150 of them children, mostly under unlawful circumstances. Amnesty is also emphasizing the impunity of these war crimes, as the overwhelming majority of the thousands extrajudicial killings over the last five years failed to be investigated.

Amnesty International has accused Israel of committing war crimes in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The rights group's report for 2004 says Israeli forces have killed some 700 Palestinians - including 150 children - mostly in unlawful circumstances.

The report lists "reckless shooting, shelling and air strikes in civilian areas... and excessive use of force".

...

Amnesty's accusations against the Israeli army include unlawful killings, torture, extensive and wanton destruction of property, obstruction of medical assistance and targeting of medical personnel.

Amnesty also says Israel has continued to use Palestinians as "human shields" during military operations, "forcing them to carry out tasks that endangered their lives", despite an injunction by Israel's high court banning the practice.

The report accuses Israel of offering impunity to soldiers and settlers who commit crimes against Palestinians.

"In the overwhelming majority of the thousands of cases of unlawful killings and other grave human rights violations in the previous four years, no investigations were known to have been carried out," the report says.
