İlknur Şebnem ÖZTEMEL – TDO – Human Rights Watch's Israel/Palestine Advocacy Director, Sari Bashi, claimed that Israeli soldiers and police were egged on by high-ranking Jewish politicians not to follow rules on their treatment of Palestinians.
Human Rights Watch released a report based on the speeches of Israeli state officials that underestimating international law and rules of engagement. She argued that some top Israeli officials have been encouraging law enforcement officers to kill suspected Palestinian fighters whether it's necessary or not. For instance, country's current defense minister Avigdor Lieberman, who in 2015 said 'no attacker, male or female, should make it out of any attack alive.'
Moreover, she said soldiers were doing police work in the occupied lands of Gaza Strip and West Bank for the last fifty years. This also led further problems.
Furthermore, Sashi said there are 150 cases of Israeli soldiers and police "fatally shooting attackers or suspected attackers" in the past 18 months.
