Following is a list of 200 Israeli army personnel who bear direct responsibility for the death and carnage inflicted on innocent people in the Gaza Strip during Operation Cast Lead of December 2008/January2009.
The officers listed below “held positions of command at the time of the attack” on Gaza and therefore “bear a distinct personal responsibility” for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against the people of Gaza. They range from low-level field commanders to the highest echelons of the Israeli army. “All took an active and direct role in the offensive.”
By publishing the names of these people, the source wishes to draw attention “to individuals rather than the static structures through which they operate”.
The source states: “We are aligning people with actions. It is to these persons and others, like them, to which we must object and bring our plaints to bear upon.”
