Given the heavy dependence by the UN Inquiry on the Gaza War on NGO reports and testimonies, NGO Monitor submitted a report to the commission led by Judge Richard Goldstone. NGO Monitor provided fact sheets on the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), Al Mezan, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch (HRW). NGO Monitor’s report provides context to the NGO reports detailing their politicized and disproportionate coverage of the Gaza War which, among other things, minimize or ignore completely Hamas’ use of human shields.
