IDF Opens Eight New Probes Into Gaza War Conduct

YERUSHALAYIM (Reuters) -

Israel’s Military Advocate General, Maj. Gen. Danny Efroni said the IDF has opened eight new criminal investigations into its Gaza war operations, including cases involving the deaths of 30 Palestinians.

The military said it would investigate a July 20 air strike on the Abu Jama family home in the town of Khan Younis in which 27 Palestinians were killed. Human rights groups alleged the dead were civilians.

The new probes will also examine the deaths of two Palestinian ambulance drivers on July 25 in Israeli strikes and a July 29 incident in which, according to a rights group, a Palestinian carrying a white flag was killed.

Four other inquiries will look into looting allegations.

About 85 incidents are under various stages of legal review by the military.
