Whilst the Israeli military consistently denies that it does not deliberately targets civilians, the relentless killings of women, children and the sick continues.

(Israeli sniper killing wounded civilian)
International and Palestinian volunteers accompanied Civil Defense and other rescue crews, as well as family members, into Shajiya, in an attempt to locate survivors of overnight and ongoing shelling by the Israeli army.
A young Palestinian man, in a green t-shirt, who hoped to reach his family's home, was shot by an Israeli soldier while crossing an alley between buildings.
Two additional rounds struck him as he lay injured on the ground.
The young man who was murdered in Shajiya after being wounded by an Israeli sniper, has been confirmed as Salem Khalil Salem Shammaly, 23-years-old, resident of Shajiya

Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow destroys the Prime Minister of Israel's Chief Spokesperson, Mark Regev, live on air on British television; questioning Israeli military attacks on Al-Wafa hospital and an attack which killed three young boys playing ball on a Gaza beach while Regev continues to claim "the Israeli military does not target civilians."

Israel accused of war crimes (UK Parliament)
Highlights from a UK parliamentary debate in which MPs variously accused Israel of war crimes, disproportionate violence, ruining peace negotiations by building illegal settlements, running the worlds largest outdoor prison, collective punishment, and attacking water supplies, hospitals, supply centres and all manner of other civilian targets. I have edited out the contributions of Foreign Secretary, William Hague, because nearly all of them displayed a shameful lack of compassion for the sufferings of the Palestinian people (Hague is a prominent member of an organisation called the 'Conservative Friends of Israel' and is well aware of the funding that involvement brings to his party and his own political campaigns)
9. Former Israeli soldier on his experience as a soldier in Palestine.
The talk by Eran Efrati was filmed in Denver, Colorado on March 3, 2014 as part of The Soldier and the Refusenik U.S. tour with Maya Wind. Eran talk about his experiences in the IDF and then more broadly discusses Israel, its relationship to the U.S. and the global expansion of militarism.
Eran Efrati, 28, was born and raised in Jerusalem.
After graduating high school he enlisted in the IDF, where he served as a combat soldier and company sergeant in Battalion 50 of the Nachal Division.
He spent most of his service in Hebron and throughout the West Bank.
In 2009, he was discharged and joined Breaking the Silence, an organization of veteran Israeli soldiers working to raise awareness about the daily reality in the Occupied Territories.
He worked as the chief investigator of the organization, collecting testimonies from IDF soldiers about their activities.
He also guided political tours and to the West Bank and worked to educate Israeli youth about the reality of being a soldier in an occupying army.
His collected testimonies appear in the booklet 'Operation Cast Lead' and their most recent release 'Our Harsh Logic'.
Since leaving Breaking the Silence, his investigative reports appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian.
Today he is active with the Israeli groups Anarchists Against the Wall and Boycott from Within.
10. Israeli soldier using handcuffed Palestinian teenager as a human shield
Israeli police are being accused of using a handcuffed Palestinian teenager as a human shield. It's after a video emerged depicting how they paraded the youth to an angry crowd supposedly in an attempt to calm the protesters. RT's Middle East correspondent Paula Slier reports.
With the recent shooting down of a Malaysian Boeing 777 over Ukraine, the Western media is aflame with fingerpointing at Russia and Ukrainian separatists. However, while NATO and its media mouthpieces attempt to rekindle the Cold War and ignite a confrontation with Russia, there exists a number of fundamental questions surrounding the events that have taken place in Eastern Ukraine.
Although not a detailed list, below are six reasons why one should question the official story of the Malaysian flight shot down over Ukraine.
1.) The Ukrainian separatists do not have the military hardware capable of shooting down an airplane at the height at which the Malaysian Boeing 777 was flying.
Ukrainian separatists are equipped with shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles which are capable of bringing down an airplane. This much is true. However, the systems believed to be possessed by the separatists are those such as the Igla missile system, which is incapable of hitting planes at the altitudes at which the Malaysian flight was flying. 33,000 feet is simply too high an altitude to be reached with the shoulder-fired missile delivery systems with which the Ukrainian separatists are currently outfitted.
There is no evidence to suggest that the separatists possess the BUK missile systems. At the time of the writing, this writer is not aware of any reports suggesting that separatists commandeered BUK missile launching systems from the Kiev fascist government forces; the only way they could have acquired them unless given the BUK by Russia, which itself is highly unlikely given Russian strategic concerns.
2.) The Kiev forces do have the BUK missile launching system.
While separatist forces are not known to possess missile systems as advanced as the BUK system, the Kiev forces most certainly do.
The BUK system, which requires transportation and mounting on a tracked vehicle or large truck, is not likely to be in the hands of rebels surviving on Russian small arms and other basic forms of military and tactical aid. BUK is much more the type of system that would be property of a national government.
If the Malaysian plane was shot down using the BUK system, it is the Kiev military forces that should immediately be investigated.
3.) Kiev moved its BUK system to the Donetsk area the day before
The fact that the type of missiles allegedly used to shoot down the Malaysian flight were not only possessed by the Ukrainian military but moved to the very region and area where the shootdown occurred implicates the Kiev forces vastly more than it does the Russians or the Ukrainian separatists.
4.) The questions surrounding why the Malaysian flight was flying over the area to begin with.
As reported by The Atlantic, the Federal Aviation Administration placed an order prohibiting “American pilots, airlines, charter carriers, and everyone else over whom the FAA has direct jurisdiction, from flying over parts of Ukraine” nearly three months ago.
This flight prohibition clearly demonstrates that aviation authorities fully understood that this particular flight path was over a dangerous area. So why was the Malaysian flight flying over this area to begin with?
The fact that the flight shot down over Ukraine is the same type of flight that went missing over the Indian ocean only months before is a highly questionable coincidence. Such a coincidence is almost too big to be believed.
Given the track record of the United States, NATO, and governments in general throughout history, one must at least wonder whether or not the recent shootdown of the Malaysian flight over Ukraine was not simply a false flag designed to drum up national fervor and a new Cold War ultimately leading to a confrontation with Russia.
It is important for the Western public and the rest of the world to become more streetwise regarding incidents such as the Malaysian flight and that they immediately cease to accept an entirely discredited government and media’s explanations as truth.
