Gaza conflict: Amnesty report says Israel committed 'war crimes'

Israel has dismissed a report by Amnesty International which says there is "strong evidence" Israel committed war crimes in Gaza following the capture of a soldier by Hamas during the 2014 conflict.

The reports says at least 135 civilians were killed in a bombardment of Rafah after Lt Hadar Goldin was seized on 1 August. He was later declared dead.

Amnesty's Philip Luther denied Israel's claim it has complied with international law, while Israeli spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon accused the charity's report of using "smoke and mirrors".
