Allegations Of War Crimes In Gaza (No. 2)

EDM number 1235 in 2008-09, proposed by Martin Linton on 31/03/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Middle East.

That this House notes the allegations which have been made in respect of war crimes committed during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009 on the basis of investigations by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and The Guardian newspaper; notes that these allegations include the use of human shields, unmanned aerial vehicles and the targeting of medical staff and medical facilities, all of which are prohibited under the Fourth Geneva Convention; recalls that Britain is a High Contracting Party to the Convention and is, therefore, legally required to uphold its provisions; and urges the Government to call for an independent inquiry sanctioned by the UN Security Council into allegations of war crimes during Operation Cast Lead.

This motion has been signed by a total of 77 MPs, 3 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
