"B´tselem strongly condemns the attack in Eilat…. in which three people were killed. Attacks aimed at civilians undermine all rules of morality and law. Palestinian organizations raise several arguments to justify attacks on Israeli civilians. The main argument is that “all means are legitimate in fighting for independence against a foreign occupation.” This argument is completely baseless , and contradicts the fundamental principle of international humanitarian law . This principle is part of international customary law; as such, it applies to every state, organization, and person, even those who are not party to any relevant convention. B´Tselem calls on the armed Palestinian groups to immediately cease all attacks directed at civilians."
