The youngest to die was a 4-day-old girl, the oldest a 92-year-old man.

They were among at least 844 Palestinians killed as a result of airstrikes on Gaza homes during Israel’s summer war with the Islamic militant group, Hamas.

Under the rules of war, homes are protected civilian sites unless used for military purposes. Israel says it attacked only legitimate targets, alleging militants used the houses to hide weapons, fighters and command centers. Palestinians say Israel’s warplanes often struck without regard for civilians.

The Associated Press examined 247 airstrikes, interviewing witnesses, visiting attack sites and compiling a detailed casualty count.

The review found that 508 of the dead — just over 60 percent — were children, women and older men, all presumed to be civilians. Hamas says it did not use women as fighters in the war, and an Israel-based research group, the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, which tracks militants among the war dead, said it has no evidence women participated in combat.

In addition:

  • Children younger than 16 made up one-third of the total: 280 killed, including 19 babies and 108 preschoolers between the ages of 1 and 5.
  • In 83 strikes, three or more members of one family died.
  • Among those killed were 96 confirmed or suspected militants — just over 11 percent of the total — though the actual number could be higher since armed groups have not released detailed casualty lists.
  • The remaining 240 dead were males between the ages of 16 and 59 whose names did not appear in AP searches of militant websites or on street posters honoring fighters.

The review was the most painstaking attempt to date to try to determine who was killed in strikes on homes; Israel’s army and Gaza militants have refused to release information about targets and casualties. The count tracked all known airstrikes on homes, though not all strikes had witnesses and damage inspected by the AP wasn’t always conclusive.

The number of civilian deaths has been a key issue in the highly charged battle over the dominant narrative of the 50-day war.

Fighting erupted in July, after a month of escalating tensions triggered by Hamas’ abduction and killing of three Israeli teens in the West Bank, and an Israeli arrest sweep of Hamas supporters that led to renewed Gaza rocket fire on Israel.

Palestinians say Israel attacked with disproportionate force and callous disregard for civilians.

If most of those killed are civilians, “you cannot call them collateral damage,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian spokeswoman.

Israel says it tried to avoid harming civilians, even as Hamas embedded weapons and fighters in residential areas.

“Our position is very clear. Israel did not commit war crimes,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has asked the International Criminal Court to investigate the war, a move that could pave the way for possible prosecution of both Israel and Hamas.

International law experts note that a high civilian death toll alone does not constitute conclusive evidence of war crimes. But it “raises a red flag and suggests that further investigation is warranted,” said Alex Whiting, a former top official at the ICC in The Hague, Netherlands.

Israel would not say how many of its 5,000 air attacks were directed at homes. However, it insists it only aimed at legitimate military targets.

Asked for comment on the AP’s findings, an Israeli army spokesman, Lt. Peter Lerner, said that “one cannot draw broad conclusions” by examining only a small percentage of Israel’s airstrikes.

Reuven Erlich, a former senior Israeli intelligence officer, questioned the reliability of Gaza witnesses and said only military experts could determine what happened in each strike.

According to preliminary U.N. figures, at least 1,483 Palestinian civilians were killed in the war — 66 percent of the overall death toll of 2,205.

Gaza militants fired about 4,300 rockets and mortar rounds at Israel, according to the Israeli military. The barrages drove tens of thousands of Israelis from their homes to seek cover. Five civilians were killed, among them a 4-year-old boy, along with 67 soldiers.

Advocacy groups and U.N. investigators have said that Hamas’ battle tactics over the years, including indiscriminate rocket fire at Israel, amount to war crimes.

The AP examined cases in which people were killed in homes or adjacent yards, including those hit by shrapnel or debris from attacks on neighboring buildings. The count excluded artillery strikes which are inherently inaccurate.

Starting in November, three reporters visited the vast majority of attack sites, interviewed survivors and collected hundreds of death certificates — documents recognized by Israel as proof of mortality.

The youngest victim, Shayma Sheik Ali, died four days after her pregnant mother’s body was pulled from the rubble of their home in the Deir el-Balah refugee camp.

The infant was delivered by emergency cesarean section, her relatives said. She died July 29, according to her death certificate.

The oldest victim, 92-year-old Abdel Karim Abu Nijem, was killed along with a son, three grandsons and three other relatives, in an airstrike on his home in the Jebaliya refugee camp. Islamic Jihad later confirmed that two fighters were also killed in that strike.

A nephew said the family received no warning. “Otherwise we would have fled,” said Mohammed Abu Nijem, whose 29-year-old wife, Soha, and 3-year-old daughter, Ragheb, were killed.

The military said it warned civilians when possible, including through phone calls or “knocks on the roof” with non-explosive missiles, and it aborted some strikes due to civilians in the vicinity.

In January, the Palestinians joined the International Criminal Court, opening the way for possible investigations of both Israel and Hamas. In response, the ICC prosecutor launched a preliminary review of whether a full probe is warranted.

Israel’s military says it is conducting a transparent investigation of any wrongdoing by its forces in the Gaza war. However, rights groups in Israel and abroad demand an independent investigation, arguing that house strikes were part of a policy approved at the highest levels and the Israeli military cannot investigate itself.

        Cook stop being a jerk and admit that zooinist jews are scum. It’s ok to be honest with yourself, start with that thought and you will progress, eventually you will disown and rebuke the zooinist ways unless ofcourse you enjoy being a scum and you value your enjoyment over other people’s miseries. I’m not saying you need to become a Pali or a moslem or whatever but it won’t kill you to be human.

          Any other country would have wiped Gaza off the map. If thousands of rockets were fired at us in London from France, we would have nuked France. As Joan Rivers said: if New Jersey dug tunnels into New York to kill people, New York would have wiped them out.

            Don’t quote no one, use your head and do the sums. Maybe have a peep at the Beatitudes.”Beatitude is a possession of all things held to be good,
            from which nothing is absent that a good desire may want.
            Perhaps the meaning of beatitude may become clearer to us
            if it is compared with its opposite.
            Now the opposite of beatitude is misery.
            Misery means being afflicted unwillingly with painful sufferings.”

            Egypt Al Azhar Scholars legalize ISIS

            1-“The sheikh of Al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, repeated his rejection of declaring IS apostates on Jan. 1, during a meeting with editors-in-chief of Egyptian newspapers. This sparked criticism from a number of religious, political and media parties, especially since Al-Azhar could have
            renounced the Nigerian mufti’s statement on IS without addressing the issue of whether or not Al-Azhar considers the group apostates.

            In press statements, Al-Azhar representative Abbas Shoman said that the institution had not declared any person or group an apostate throughout its history. Yet, this claim was refuted by the daughter of late Egyptian author Farag Foda, Samar Farag Foda, who called into an Egyptian satellite TV program, saying, “My father’s
            assassination came as a result of fatwas issued by the majority of Al-Azhar’s sheikhs declaring him an apostate, because he had called for the separation of religion from politics.”

            Al-Azhar’s leaders — the grand mufti and the Council of Senior Scholars — have actually never declared any person or group an apostate throughout Al-Azhar’s history, yet they have not taken any measures against Al-Azhar figures who have issued fatwas to that effect.
            Prominent fatwas include those by Al-Azhar’s Scholar Front, headed by Sheikh Abdul Ghaffar Aziz, who declared Foda an apostate on June 1,1992. The Scholar Front comprises sheikhs who are considered radicals and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. Aziz was the dean of two of Al-Azhar’s colleges and among those who drafted the curriculum for Al-Azhar University. Sheikh Abd Rabbo Muftah, an inspector in the Department of Preaching at Al-Azhar, issued another
            notable fatwa declaring Egyptian writer Taha Hussein an apostate in 1926. Furthermore, a committee of 20 Al-Azhar scholars declared scholar Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd
            an apostate and demanded that he repent for the ideas that appeared in his studies. In 1995, the Egyptian judiciary charged Abu Zayd with apostasy and forcibly divorced him from his wife, forcing the couple to emigrate.”

            3- “Al-Azhar, which does not comment on the apostate fatwas issued by some of its scholars, confirmed its rejection of deeming IS apostates. Perhaps Al-Azhar leaders fear delving into the issue of fatwas expressing Al-Azhar’s “rejection or faith in some IS ideas, or due to the presence of a Salafist lobby within Al-Azhar that was behind this statement”.

            The controversy surrounding Al-Azhar’s statement on IS may not dissipate until a review is carried out of Al-Azhar’s structure and curriculum. Concerning the latter, in September 2014, the US Embassy in Egypt’s charge d’affaires announced that he sought to increase US scholarships for some Al-Azhar students seeking to obtain master’s degrees and doctorates, even though Al-Azhar’s curriculum currently includes “calls to violence”

            ” Al-Azhar representative Abbas Shoman said that the institution had not declared any person or group an apostate throughout its history. It’s claim was refuted by the daughter of late Egyptian author Farag Foda”

            And then this

            “Al-Azhar’s leaders – the grand mufti and the Council of Senior Scholars – have actually never declared any person or group an apostate throughout Al-Azhar’s history”

            That was from the same article you FRAUD and LIAR.

            Which it seems you didn’t understand. At all.
            The whole point of the article was about their willingness to Fatwah what they don’t like and the people who debate their ‘holy grails’, like the one author did – even to the extent of castigating the whole family for his ‘free thought’, as the daughter noted – but refuse to Fatwah anyone the twisted ‘believers’ think: ‘could be a little good because they spout the lines similar to ours’ …. as well as: ‘if we Fatwah those jerks, then it makes some of our ‘belief-lines’ look bad too’.
            A world of Mass Confusion: Mostly in Language.
            WHY ANYONE would think ANY Muslim would declare apostasy at all is slightly weird.

            ‘APOSTASY’ (n) – Orig. Greek – ‘DESERTION’ – updated meaning: Abandonment of a belief or principal.
            Somehow the word got worked around into the R.C. thinking, and a new word arrived.
            ‘APOSTOLIC’: … 1. Related to the Apostles, 2. Related to the Pope, regarded as successor to St. Peter. !?!
            AND SO … An APOSTOLATE: 1. The position of authority of a religious leader. 2. EVANGELISTIC activity.

            It may not be very ‘Logical’ to think that ‘Senior Scholars’ would dump on those who are ‘carrying their word’ with a great evangelistic zeal.
            But they sure DON’T like those who do the same on a Christian-belief Side – OR even their own people who attempt to slightly ‘modernize’ the lines a little.
            So, what they do – ad infinitum – is MAKE FATWAHS !!! :-))))))

    Thank you AP for your courage and humanity in performing this research. If over 60% are children, women and elderly men, then how many of the less than 40% remaining were also civilians? I would bet at least half. So, at best, Israel killed 4 civilians for every 1 militant. If that doesn’t constitute war crimes, I don’t know what does.

    Shame on Netanyahu, shame on the IDF and shame on Hamas for wasting precious human life. The only way that this heinous act will not be repeated again and again is for swift and decisive action on war crimes for everyone involved on both sides.

    1. cook2half Avatar

      I agree that Hamas fires rockets from civilian homes. Pretty much all terrorist groups do it, just lately Jordan accused ISIS of doing it. Only difference is you hypocrites whine only when Israel is involved.

        You’re wrong – and please pick that victim card back up. You overplay that hand far too often. Israel is sloppy and indifferent to slaughtering civilians, that is clear as can be. Stop making excuses for their inhumanity.

        1. cook2half Avatar

          Don’t you think for a minute, that if Israel wanted civilians dead, that we would see 20 times more casualties?

          You REALLY think Israel would go through an expensive war and propaganda campaign against them, all for the sake of killing a few children? ever considered that Israel was retaliating to missiles being fired at Tel Aviv? :O

            I never said that Israel was on a campaign to wipe out civilians, and I never argued that Israel shouldn’t retaliate for being attacked – so on both points, put that victim card back in your shirt pocket.

            I do believe that Israel would rather kill innocent Palestinian civilians than put their IDF at risk – hence dropping bombs from the sky and killing only 1 target for every 4 dead civilians instead of a more precise ground assault. After all, what do Israeli politicians care more about – answering to the world community about dead Palestinian civilians or to the Israeli voters about dead Israeli soldiers? I think the latter.

          2. cook2half Avatar

            Well yeah that’s obvious.

            I don’t think Israelis were very happy with Natanyahu.

    2. Don’t fire rockets at Israel from civilian neighborhoods. Quite simple.
