Still one cannot deny a lot of the facts stated here, their effect on

Yet, in the recent fighting between Israel and Hizbullah, both sides have sought to justify the deaths of civilians and the destruction of infrastructure. Amnesty International will not go down this route. We do not condemn or condone war itself, but we do condemn grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian laws wherever they occur and whoever has committed them.
