Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the place of human rights and humanitarian considerations in the actions of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) over the past six or so years. The manner by which the IDF has prosecuted the Al-Aqsa Intifada is unlike the way it performed during the previous uprising (1987-1991). In the context of the Al-Aqsa Intifada some of the same dynamics appear to take hold. Numerous human rights movements and humanitarian organizations regularly operate within and report about the plight of the Palestinians in the occupied territories. While many of the rules governing the actions of the IDF existed, no doubt, at the time of the last Intifada, the IDF appears to have internalized many of the prescriptions found in the discourse on human rights and the activities and organizational innovations of other military establishments.

Keywords: Al-Aqsa Intifada; human rights; humanitarian considerations; Israel Defence Forces (IDF)
