Human Rights Watch again twists international law in its latest press release on Gaza:

Israel: Rafah Evacuation Plans Catastrophic, Unlawful

 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the Israeli army and other officials to submit to the cabinet a plan to evacuate Rafah, Gaza’s southernmost governorate. Netanyahu said this action is necessary to attack Hamas battalions in the area.

With a pre-war population of 280,000, Rafah is now housing the majority of Gaza’s population, including most of the 1.7 million displaced Palestinians. Conditions are increasingly desperate, with people sheltering in makeshift camps—tents built with flimsy materials—and in overcrowded apartment buildings. Many have been displaced multiple times amid intense Israeli airstrikes and ground operations, as well as the continued blockade.

International humanitarian law prohibits the forced displacement of civilians except when temporarily required for their security or imperative military reasons. During the hostilities in Gaza, Human Rights Watch has warned that forced displacement, a war crime, is becoming more of a risk. 
So according to Human Rights Watch, Israel trying to defeat Hamas is not an "imperative military reason."  

HRW is saying Hamas must not be defeated.  Because if HRW admits that Israel's war against Hamas is legitimate, it has to admit that Israel is not only allowed but mandated to evacuate as many civilians as possible from Rafah to get them out of harm's way.

There is only one conclusion. In Israel's war ro destroy Hamas, HRW is solidly on the side of the murderers, kidnappers and rapists.

Which is an interesting position for a "human rights group" to take. 

But then again, why be surprised? HRW's UN director wrote an article in The Nation claiming that Israel's evidence that UNRWA workers had participated in the October 7 massacre was "scant," "if any." He is broadly implying that Israel is making up evidence. Yet the Washington Post found video footage of one of the UNRWA workers carrying the body of an Israeli at Kibbutz Beeri on October 7, and putting it into his own Nissan Terrano II.

Not exactly "scant" evidence, is it? 

But HRW will never correct itself, just as it hasn't in hundreds of other cases where it was found to have reported things that weren't true. 

HRW's defense  of UNRWA workers-cum-terrorists shows which side it is on: the side of the murderers, kidnappers and rapists.
