Aljazeera exclusive photos show Israeli security and armed forces using Palestinian prisoners as human shields

Al Jazeera has obtained exclusive new images showing the Israeli occupation army using Palestinian prisoners as human shields during the fighting in the Gaza Strip.

The images, which Al Jazeera obtained, show a prisoner being forced to enter a tunnel after being tied with a rope and a camera attached to his body, in addition to forcing prisoners to wear military clothing while being used as human shields.

They also show a wounded prisoner being used as a human shield and forced to enter destroyed homes in Gaza, where the bodies of martyrs are seen lying on the ground at the entrance to the house.

Al Jazeera had previously obtained images showing the occupation forces using a prisoner as a human shield in one of the streets of the Shujaiya neighborhood east of Gaza City.

In the West Bank, video clips showed a wounded prisoner being tied to the front of an Israeli military vehicle during the storming of the city of Jenin, for fear of resistance bullets.

International humanitarian law and the 1949 Geneva Convention prohibit armies from using civilians as human shields, and the International Criminal Court considers it a war crime.
