Rights groups say Israel deliberately violent

Activists accuse the Israeli army of using excessive force while trying to stop Palestinian protests.

    Human rights groups say the Israeli army is using too much force while trying to stop Palestinian protests. 

    Israel's rules of engagement allow soldiers to use live fire, but only in extreme situations. However, in the last month, the army has shot dead at least six Palestinians.
