Missiles and Dynamite: The Israeli Military Forces' Destruction of Palestinian Homes with Anti-Tank Missiles and High-Powered Explosives

Between 1992 and 1993, Israeli military forces pursued a new strategy in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, ostensibly in the pursuit of "wanted" Palestinians. This new Israeli polucy permits the use of anti-tank missiles and high-powered explosives by the military forces during what the Israeli authorities describe as "military operations" conducted in order to arrest fugitive individuals. Anti-tank missiles and high-powered explosives are fired at and detonated inside Palestinian homes. As a consequence, many Palestinian homes have been destroyed and hundreds of Palestinians have been left homeless. This report reviews these actions in light of international law, examining Israeli positions as well as the matter of redress.
