Operation Defensive Shield: Witnesses to Israeli War Crimes

by Muna Hamzeh & Todd May (editors)
£18.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2003)

Operation Defensive Shield: Witnesses to Israeli War Crimes by Muna Hamzeh & Todd May (editors) On March 29 2002 the Israeli army launched Operation Defensive Shield, the largest military offensive against Palestinian civilians since the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. During the operation the military used the most advanced weaponry at its disposal: Merkava tanks, Apache attack helicopters and F-15 fighter jets. When the operation had ended on April 21 2002 Israel had destroyed the Palestinian economic and social infrastructure, levelled large swathes of of residential area, killed 220 people, injured hundreds more and arrested thousands. This book documents these events through a collection of electronic witness narratives written by Palestinians who were under attack and by Israeli and international peace activists who witnessed the results of these attacks. Deeply moving and courageous, these narratives offer a uniquely powerful and intimate account of the daily reality for Palestinians who endured Ariel Sharon's military strategy and the death and destruction that strategy has caused throughout the Occupied Territories.
