According to a report by international military experts, Israel went out of its way last summer to minimize civilian casualties in Gaza and observe international law during its crackdown.
According to Fox News, the report said that Israel even went on at the cost of its own soldiers and citizens.
According to the High Level International Military Group, a consortium of some of the world's leading military experts, Israel went to great lengths to follow laws governing armed conflict after launching "Operation Protective Edge" on July 8, 2014 despite a daily barrage of rockets, often launched from schools, mosques and hospitals within Gaza.
The violence lasted for seven weeks and left more than 2,000 dead.
The report stated that Israel "not only met a reasonable international standard of observance of the laws of armed conflict, but in many cases significantly exceeded that standard".
