Blinken report accuses Israel of potentially violating humanitarian law

by ian


Yesterday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered his first heavy-handed critique of Israel’s conduct since that nation’s conflict with Hamas began.

Blinken accused the Jewish nation of not doing a good enough job of eliminating Hamas and killing too many civilians in the process. He even accused the IDF of going against international humanitarian law.

The Biden administration has not been able to confirm how many civilians were used as ‘human shields’ by Hamas and how many weren’t. Nevertheless, the administration believes that the IDF still went against humanitarian guidelines given their reliance on US weapons. Blinken added that he expects to see a better plan for Gaza from Israel.
