In a strange series of tweets, the International Committee of the Red Cross criticized the fictional Israeli series Fauda for containing fictional violations of humanitarian law.
The International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) describes itself as “an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance.”
So it seems odd as to why the organization, in a bizarre series of tweets, singled out the fictional Israeli-made Netflix show Fauda commits fictional violations of humanitarian law.
The popular Netflix series focuses on an undercover Israeli army unit combating terrorists in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.
Why isn’t the ICRC focusing on real crimes against humanity?
