Is Gaza still occupied? How and why did Israel launch ‘Operation Protective Edge’? Did Israel’s armed forces commit war crimes? Does Hamas use human shields – and what about the rockets?
In this concise, well-sourced book, these commonly-asked questions and more are answered by journalist and author Ben White, a regular contributor to Al Jazeera, Middle East Monitor, Newsweek Middle East, Middle East Eye, and other publications.
‘The 2014 Gaza War: 21 Questions & Answers’ is a must-read for diplomats, journalists, students, human rights activists, and anyone seeking to get to grips with the situation in Palestine/Israel.
With a foreword by University of Exeter-based Israeli historian Ilan Pappe, this is an indispensable resource for understanding both the events of ‘Operation Protective Edge’, the Gaza context more broadly, and the ongoing Israeli military occupation.
