Gaza Fatality Figures Provided by Hamas Should Be Viewed with Suspicion


gaza-deadFatality figures provided by Hamas and other Palestinian groups should be viewed with suspicion,  Steven Stotsky of Time reports.

Analyses of the casualties listed in the daily reports published by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) indicate that young males ages 17 to 30 make up a large portion of the fatalities, a pattern consistent with the age distribution typically found among combatants and military conscripts.

PCHR data show that from July 8 through July 26, 404 out of 915 fatalities were young males.

Hamas has instructed Gazans to describe anyone killed as a civilian.
