Israel legitimises killing Palestinians during protests; says it is ‘state of war’

Israeli authorities have brazenly stated that the recent protests along the Gaza Border are considered to be a ‘state of war’ and human rights law is not applicable in this situation, reports said.

The Israeli authorities were responding to a High Court petition.

“The state opposes the applying of human rights law during an armed conflict,” the reply stated, pointing out that the Red Cross had stated that human rights law did not necessarily apply during periods of war.

In 2015, the Israeli High Court ruled that in the midst of the breaking-up a violent, life-threatening protest, the use of potentially deadly force is allowed.
