Amnesty International accused the Israeli army of committing war crimes in Jenin and Nablus during its anti-terrorist campaign last spring. In a report issued Monday, the human rights group cited unlawful killings, use of civilians as human shields and the prevention of medical and humanitarian aid from reaching Palestinian civilians. The Israeli army said in a statement that its actions came in self-defense following Palestinian terror attacks on Israeli civilians.
