Palestinian militants from the Islamic Jihad armed group fire home-made rockets during a training in the Gaza Strip, on Oct 13, 2009. The United Nations Human Rights Council said 13 October it will hold a special session to debate the war crimes report of Justice Richard Goldstone later this week. Both Israel and Hamas, the Islamist movement ruling the coastal enclave, were accused in Goldstone's findings of committing war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity during the three weeks of fighting. According to rights groups, the violence killed approximately 1,400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and caused 13 Israeli fatalities, including three civilians. Photo by Ashraf Amra
