On 29 January, in a previous blog post on Gaza, I wrote: “Reuters UK today published an interesting online report, ‘Hamas accused of torture death of Gaza critic‘. ” I went on to note that the article made three points: “1) The main story is that a Palestinian man accused Hamas militants of ‘torturing and killing his brother for publicly criticising them.’ The dead man, ‘a teacher, was a supporter of the Fatah movement…’ 2) According to the report, ‘About 1,300 Palestinians were killed, according to a Gaza human rights group, of whom over 700 were civilians.’ This is one of the first non-Israeli sources I have seen referring tonon-civilian casualties in such numbers. 3) ‘The Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Thursday that Hamas “executed several dozen civilians” during and after Israel’s assault on Gaza. Some were members of Fatah, but others were not politically affiliated.’
