For victims and survivors of the 2014 assault on Gaza, Israel’s own military courts are the only place to seek legal recourse. These courts do not offer a genuine avenue for justice to Palestinians.
Of the 500 Palestinian complaints which were filed with Israeli military courts in relation to the 2014 Gaza war, 196 were dismissed immediately, 133 were lost in the system, and only 31 were brought forward for criminal investigation.
Three soldiers were eventually convicted for minor felonies such as credit card theft and looting. Military commanders and politicians—those most responsible for the massive destruction and loss of life—have never been held accountable for their role in violations of human rights and international law.
Justice Denied was produced as part of a series on the 2014 Gaza war, as a collaboration between Visualizing Palestine, Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, and Adalah - The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights. Download the full poster here on our website.
