The Goldstone Report was the product of a fact finding mission on the Gaza conflict 2008-2009, also called Operation Cast Lead, who investigated alleged war crimes committed by Israel and Hamas during the conflict. The conclusion of the report accused both Israel and Hamas of war crimes. The report was scrutinized in the media and... (More)
