How a research team is transforming the investigation of potential war crimes

‘Operation Protective Edge’ was launched by Israel on 8 July 2014 in response to rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza. By the time the military operation had ended, more than 2,100 Gazans were reported dead, including 150 people killed during a bombardment of the Palestinian city of Rafah on 1 August. Working with Amnesty International, a research team at Goldsmiths, University of London created a 3D model of the bombardment using video shot by Gazans. Forensic Architects dissects the research team’s efforts to reconstruct the attack and determine if war crimes were committed.
