    Human Rights Watch has accused Israeli soldiers of unlawfully killing 11 Palestinian civilians during the War on Gaza.

    The civilians - which included five women and four children - were holding white flags when they were shot dead.

    To counter criticism, the Israeli government has launched a campaign to discredit human rights groups.

    Al Jazeera spoke to Avital Leibovich, the Israeli army's spokesperson, about its response.
