Day #25 – July 31, 2014 – Forensic architecture in Rafah

The 1st August 2014 saw the darkest day in the Gaza Conflict of 2014 – Black Friday. This is the story of what happened that day – which saw the highest number of Palestinian civilians lose their lives under a massive bombardment by the Israeli military – told in most extraordinary detail in a joint investigation by Amnesty International and the Forensic Architecture department of Goldsmiths, University of London. Using a 3D model of Rafah and hundreds of stills, video footage, testimonies this collaboration shows that there is strong evidence that the Israelis committed war crimes and possible crimes against humanity: something they have always denied. It is the story of the kidnapping of a soldier, a secret military order and the extraordinary price paid by Palestinian civilians for a single Israeli life.
