Al-Haq’s publication ‘Divide and Conquer. A legal analysis of Israel’s 2014 offensive on the Gaza Strip’ addresses select aspects of Israel’s conduct of hostilities and puts the offensive in the wider context of the occupation and an ongoing unlawful closure. In particular the publication discusses Israel’s attacks against hospitals, ambulances, journalists and media buildings. Furthermore, it challenges Israel’s policy and practices concerning legitimate targets, the Hannibal Directive, the notion of voluntary human shields, and knock-on-the roof warnings that lead to mass forcible displacement. The publication casts a dark shadow on the behavior of Israel’s self-proclaimed ‘moral’ army as it reveals that Israel did not comply with international humanitarian law. Rather, it is apparent that Israel intentionally misconstrued norms of international law during combat.
