Gaza: Children are the main victims of Israeli bombing

Translated Saturday 24 January 2009, by Helen Robertshaw

The EMDH (Children of the World - Human Rights) association has denounced Israeli violations of several international laws, in particular the International Convention for Children’s Rights (CIDE).

The association said: “Children, who represent 56% of the inhabitants of the Gaza strip, are the main victims of the Israeli offensive and receive no protection or treatment adapted to their needs. In the eyes of international criminal law, Israel has repeatedly committed war crimes, and EMDH, which has been fighting for 22 years for the protection of children, demands that those responsible be prosecuted and judged accordingly.”
