Ottawa – Human rights activists in Canada, including Jews and Arabs, have urged the Canadian authorities to arrest Moshe Yaalon who is widely believed to have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity against Palestinian civilians while serving as chief of staff of the Israeli army between 2002-2005.

Ya’alon was due to arrive in Canada on Wednesday on an invitation by extremist Jewish groups.

According to human rights organizations, Ya’alon ordered Israeli forces to murder in cold blood hundreds of Palestinian children and minors and destroy thousands of homes, in some instances right on top of sleeping men, women and children.

During the Jenin massacre in 2002, the Israeli army, which was receiving instructions directly from Ya’alon, Israeli army bulldozers demolished a home where physically handicapped people were cowering inside.

Similar cases of callous murder also took place in Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Ya’alon also approved an air strike on a Gaza apartment building, resulting in the death of 17 people, including 12 children.
