Kofi Annan accused Israel of launching illegitimate attacks on Palestinian civilians. In a letter leaked Monday, the U.N. secretary-general said Israel’s incursion into Palestinian cities and refugee camps earlier this month resembled “all-out conventional warfare.” Annan also wrote that “Israel is fully entitled to defend itself against terror. But this right does not discharge it of its obligation to respect the fundamental principles and rules of international law.”
