Collective Punishment

Not going to say much about the war crime that is the current situation in Gaza. I will say this much though, the destruction of the one and only power plant in Gaza is a form of collective punishment expressly prohibited..
Article 53 - Destruction of property [hide] Art. 53. Any destruction by the Occupying Power of real or personal property belonging individually or collectively to private persons, or to the State, or to other public authorities, or to social or cooperative organizations, is prohibited, except where such destruction is rendered absolutely necessary by military operations.[my link]
There isn't a military reason to hit the one and only power plant in Gaza. Hamas does not have a "pentagon" or any other sophisticated, high power consumption radar or other command and control operation which would be rendered useless by the destruction of the one and only power plant.

That is all.
