HRW accuses Egypt of 'mass home demolitions' in Sinai

Residents gather next to the remains of buildings destroyed by the Egyptian military in divided border town of Rafah, along the border with the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, on November 4, 2014Human Rights Watch on Tuesday accused Egypt’s military of having “violated international law” through mass home demolitions and evictions over the past two years along its border with Gaza. Egypt’s army in October created a wide buffer zone in the border town of Rafah in the north of the Sinai peninsula, where it says tunnels have allowed militants and weapons in from the Palestinian enclave. “The large-scale destruction of at least 3,255 buildings in Rafah to counter the threat of smuggling tunnels was likely disproportionate and did not meet Egypt’s obligations under international human rights law or the laws of war,” HRW said.
