Military`s investigations into Operation Cast Lead focus on individual soldiers, not unlawful policiesB`Tselem - MPIU, which is the only body currently investigating Operation Cast Lead, has no authority to investigate the responsibility of decision-makers outside the military who were involved in policy setting.

Troubled Waters - Palestinians denied fair access to waterAmnesty International - Full Report - ďWater is life; without water we canít live; not us, not the animals, or the plants. Before we had some water, but after the army destroyed everything we have to bring water from far away; itís very difficult and expensive. They make our life very difficult, to make us leave. The soldiers first destroyed our homes and the shelters with our flocks, uprooted all our trees, and then they wrecked our water cisterns. These were old water cisterns, from the time of our ancestors. Isnít this a crime? Water is precious. We struggle every day because we donít have water.Ē Fatima al-Nawajah, a resident of Susya, a Palestinian village in the South Hebron Hills, to Amnesty International, April 20083/11/2009
