Nazareth, 10 Dzulqa’dah 1436/25 August 2015 (MINA) – Two human rights groups working within 1948 occupied territories have appealed the closing of a probe into the killing of four Palestinian children on Gaza beach during Israel’s summer aggression on Gaza.
Al Mizan and Adalah centers said that Israeli army targeted and deliberately killed four Palestinian children while playing in Gaza beach in total violation to international laws, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The two groups condemned the Israeli decision to close the file without taking any legal measures against the responsible for the crime.
Al Mezan and Adalah submitted an urgent letter to the Military Advocate General (MAG) demanding an immediate, independent investigation into suspected war crimes. The human rights organizations reject the Israeli army’s closure of the investigation.
On Friday 12 June 2015, the Israeli army announced the closure of the investigation file into the killing of four children of the Bakr family – Ahed (10 years), Zakaria (10 years), Mohammed (11 years) and Ismail (10 years) – by an Israeli military rocket attack, while they were playing on the fishermen’s beach in Gaza City, during the Israeli war on Gaza last summer, on 16 July 2014.(T/P008/R03)
