Which is more dangerous: a man who has no medical training or one who is trained?
Posted On August 7, 2021
A man who is not even a doctor is more likely to be harmed than one who has been trained.
This is according to an analysis of hospital data by the Jerusalem Post.
According to a report published last week by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, Israeli forces were responsible for a record 3,095 civilian casualties in 2015, compared to 1,066 in 2014.
That means the Israeli military killed an average of 2.8 Palestinians per day, a far cry from the 5-7 civilians killed in Gaza each day.
The IDF claims that it is not responsible for civilian deaths in Gaza, but the data shows otherwise.
The military claimed that it did not carry out any attacks on hospitals, but there is no proof of that.
The Palestinian Center noted that hospitals are located in civilian neighborhoods, and it is impossible to know the number of wounded in Gaza because of the security situation there.
It also said that the medical profession is under siege in Gaza and has been for years.
As of August 2016, the UN and other organizations have recorded a total of 3,724 civilian casualties, the highest number recorded since 2012, according to the latest count by the United Nations.
The Israeli military has denied that it targets hospitals.
The Military Advocate General of Israel has said that “the IDF has the right to protect itself” and that “all attacks on Israeli civilians are illegal.”
However, the IDF has not always been so forthcoming about civilian casualties.
On July 26, 2015, the Israeli army claimed that “two of the injured were civilians.”
According to the Military Advocate Gen. Amos Harel, two of the casualties were Palestinians.
Two days later, on July 29, the military claimed to have killed five civilians, including three children, in the Gaza Strip.
However, no information about the casualties was provided to the UN Fact-Finding Mission to Gaza (UNFGA), which has been investigating the conflict.
The UN Fact Finding Mission has also documented at least eight instances of Israeli attacks on civilians.
According of the United Nation’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human rights, the most recent figures on civilian deaths, released in February 2017, show that Israeli forces have killed at least 7,065 Palestinians since Israel began its campaign in Gaza in 2014, including 1,852 civilians, according the UN report.
In 2016, Israeli army forces killed more than 6,500 Palestinians, including 476 children, according a report by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem.
According a report issued by Human Rights Watch in June, the number killed in Israel’s Operation Protective Edge since July 8, 2017, is 7,400.
In 2017, Israeli soldiers shot and killed at an estimated 6,000 Palestinians, mainly civilians, during the campaign against Hamas.
In September, the army announced that it would begin releasing its statistics on civilian casualties from the Operation Protective East.
The figures released in December show that Israel killed 1,764 Palestinians in Gaza between January 1, 2018, and September 30, 2018.
However that number has decreased significantly since the beginning of the conflict in the summer of 2014, when the military had claimed that 6,400 Palestinians had been killed.
As the conflict continues, the latest figures show that at least 562 Palestinians have been killed, while 709 civilians have been wounded.
