Human Rights Watch Releases New Report on Israeli - Lebanon War

Last week on September 6, 2007, Human Rights Watch ("HRW") released their detailed report  on civilian casualties in the Israeli - Lebanon War of last summer.  In the report, HRW lays the blame from the vast majority of civilian deaths at the doorstep of  Israel's indiscriminate airstrikes, not Hezbollah's shielding as claimed  by Israeli officials.  

Of the approximately 900 civilian deaths inside Lebanon during the July-August 2006 War, HRW investigated more than  500 of the deaths in making their determination in the released report.  

The full report is available here:
