BBC News reports an Israeli activist group has accused the military of employing a "policy of indiscriminate fire" that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians during last year's Gaza war. Breaking the Silence said the rules of engagement during the 50-day conflict were "the most permissive" it had seen. It published testimonies of soldiers, one of whom said they were ordered to shoot to kill any person they saw. The military said the group had failed to provide any proof of its claims. The fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza left a total of at least 2,189 Palestinians dead, including more than 1,486 civilians, according to the UN. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed.
