Gisha on Turkel Commission`s interim conclusions: No Commission of Inquiry Can Authorize Collective PunishmentGisha - Newsletter - International law permits restricting movement for purposes of security, so long as Israel protects the rights of residents in Gaza to engage in normal life. However, imposing a closure for purposes of punishment is forbidden, as the International Committee of the Red Cross stated in reference to the maritime incident. According to official documents obtained by Gisha under the Freedom of Information Act, Israel prevented the passage of civilian goods such as spices, raw materials and consumer items and even set limitations for the amount of food it would permit residents of Gaza to purcha se. We disagree with the Commission`s conclusion that the restrictions were justified for military or "strategic" reasons.27/1/2011

The shooter proceeded to chase the flock, kicking a ewe and throwing rocks at its head.
