CA­SU­ALTY CLAIMS CHAL­LENGED

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

AN anal­y­sis of deaths in Gaza has re­vealed that most are “dis­pro­por­tion­ately those of young males, which cor­re­sponds with the char­ac­ter­is­tics of com­bat­ants”, and not women or chil­dren. Data pub­lished by Al Jazeera and ex­am­ined by the Com­mit­tee for Ac­cu­racy in Mid­dle East Reporting in Amer­ica (Cam­era), chal­lenges claims that Is­rael is in­dis­crim­i­nately killing civil­ians. Cam­era’s re­port said: “Males over 40 are also dis­pro­por­tion­ately rep­re­sented”, such deaths be­ing “likely to rep­re­sent mem­bers of ter­ror­ist or­gan­i­sa­tions.”
