Israel committed “numerous, serious human rights abuses” in the West Bank and Gaza, according to the U.S. State Department. In its annual human rights report, released Monday, the department found that at least 990 Palestinians and two foreign nationals were killed in violence with Israel last year, and that Israel carried out targeted killings in “crowded areas when civilian casualties were likely, killing 25 bystanders, including 13 children.”
