Belhas v. Ya'alon Oral Arguments


Add to My Calendar Monday, December 10, 2007



Belhas v. Ya’alon is a class action lawsuit filed against retired Israeli Lieutenant General Moshe Ya’alon that charges him with war crimes and extra-judicial killing for his role in the Israel Defense Forces’s (IDF) attack on a United Nations compound in Qana, Lebanon that killed more than 100 Lebanese civilians who had taken shelter there, and injured many more.

In December 2006, Judge Friedman of the U.S. District Court dismissed the case. The Plaintiffs, including Saadallah Ali Belhas who lost 31 members of his family in the attack, appealed the dismissal to the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia and urge the Court to find Ya'alon is not entitled to immunity from the suit.

Join CCR as Plaintiffs make oral arguments in support of the appeal at the U.S. Court of Appeals.
