Op-ed: Legal Aspects of ‘Operation Cast Lead’ in Gaza

View my op-ed published on JURIST Forum,  Legal Aspects of ‘Operation Cast Lead’ in Gaza, where I argue that while self-defense (in the classic model) is the legal basis for Israel’s “Operation Cast Lead” against Hamas, the Israel Defense Forces’ re-articulation of proportionality and collateral damage in that context is a new development in international law that carries significant risks.
