Israel/Occupied Territories: Suicide attacks against civilians condemned as crime against humanity

Amnesty International said:

“Palestinian armed groups must put an immediate end to suicide bombings and other attacks against civilians.

Such deliberate and systematic targeting of civilians is a crime against humanity.”

The attacks are the first suicide bombings to take place inside Israel since 14 March 2004, when 10 people were killed in the port of Ashdod. According to news reports, the two suicide bombers each boarded a bus and then set off their explosives almost simultaneously.

Amnesty International has repeatedly condemned suicide bombings and other attacks against civilians carried out by Palestinian armed groups including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
