"Internal" UN report contradicts Israeli version of events of beach shelling (tags)
If no one had been at the beach to capture the explosion's aftermath, the incident might have passed quickly with a few Palestinian condemnations and a brisk Israeli retort.
Revealed: the shrapnel evidence that points to Israel's guilt (tags)
Mr Garlasco [HRW's military analyst and former Pentagon battle damage expert] produced a four to five-inch, mainly blackened shell fragment which he collected about 100 yards from the scene of the explosion and in which the figures 55 and the letters "mm" are clearly discernible...Israel has dismissed continuing calls for an independent international inquiry into the beachfront explosion... Mr Garlasco who accompanied a small group of journalists to the Beit Lahia beach, pointed to three separate craters, each covered in a whitish powder, which he said were fresh, one of which was at the spot where witnesses agree the fatal blast occurred, and the two others separated it from it by about 120 and 250 yards. Mr Garlasco added: "It would be a really ridiculous coincidence if there is active shelling and then suddenly an IED [improvised explosive device] goes off."
