The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights condemned Israel in a statement (June 24), purporting to be based on “PCHR’s investigations and eyewitnesses’ testimonies.” However, PCHR’s account is rife with falsehoods. Crucially, key elements were obviously contradicted by security camera footage published by the Israel Police later that day. This episode exemplifies the unreliability of agenda-driven NGO reports and claims of “eyewitness testimony.”
Gerald Steinberg claims that the funders of Breaking the Silence are clearly interested in portraying the actions of IDF soldiers as criminal and callous, thereby hoping to pave the way for prosecutions targeting Israel at the International Criminal Court.
