12 July #GazaCity: 17 family members killed when Israeli warplanes bombarded house as worshippers left nearby mosque http://t.co/Fj79TuSY6c— AmnestyInternational (@AmnestyOnline) July 12, 2015
Amnesty is referring to the bombing of the Al Batsh family home in Shejaiya.
18 members of the family died (one a few weeks later.) But they were not exactly all innocent.
Here are the al-Batsh family members who were also Hamas terrorists from the Al Qassam Brigades:
Nahed Na’im al-Batsh. 41 , Qassam commander (Martyr video here)
Bahaa Majed al-Batsh, 28
Ahmad Nu’man al-Batsh, 27
Jalal Majed al-Batsh, 26
Zakariya Alaa Subhi al-Batsh
Yihya 'Alaa al-Batsh, 18
These six Hamas terrorists were using the rest of their family as human shields. Almost certainly such a house with such dedicated Hamas members was a major command and control center, which is why Israel would not have warned them ahead of time.
The owner of the house,Taysir, is a Hamas police commissioner as well, although he wasn't killed.
The Batsh children were also being indoctrinated into terror. Here is 10 year old Anas, who was killed:
If young Anas was being groomed to be a child soldier, that's 'another violation.
But Amnesty has nothing bad to say about Hamas' crimes. And it will never even admit that militants were in the houses that they are portraying as completely civilian.
Context is critical to understanding the truth. Amnesty is purposefully withholding context in order to demonize Israel and only Israel.
It isn't a human rights organization - it is a Hamas propaganda outlet.
Soon we will look at one of the Amnesty researchers involved in these reports and see how biased Amnesty researchers are.
