Israeli Accountability Campaign

What is the Israeli Accountability Campaign?
The Israeli Accountability Campaign (IAC) seeks to build upon the existing law suit against former Israeli military official Moshe Ya'alon alleging that he committed war crimes for his role in the 1996 Qana massacre. The IAC draws a connection between Israel's attack in 1996 and July 2006 and provides advocates with an organzing packet to both educate and mobilize their communities to demand Israeli Accountability for both attacks against Lebanese civilians in Qana.
