Doron Almog (born 1951 as DoronAvrotzky – דורון אלמוג) is a former Major General in the Israel Defense Forces reserves.
On 10 January 2002, as head of the Southern Command, the suspect ordered the demolition of 59 houses in Rafah, occupied Gaza, an act that is considered to be collective punishment under international law and therefore prohibited.
On 22 July 2002, the suspect was part of a group which ordered a one-ton bomb to be dropped on a house in Gaza to eliminate the Palestinian Salah Shehadeh. The explosion killed 15 people, including 9 children. Dozens of people were injured.
The demolition of homes, the expulsion of residents, the bombing of residential areas, the killing of innocent civilians as a policy of occupation are considered violations of International law and classed as war crimes.
In 2005, a British court issued a warrant to arrest the suspect, however he evaded capture. In July 2008, the High Court of Spain issued a second warrant to arrest the suspect for his part in bombing the house in Gaza. Spain has extradition treaties with other EU countries.
Description of the suspect: a white man, about 65 years old, above average height, short graying hair, blue eyes. Also goes by his previous name DoronAvrutzki. Was seen recently in a company which invests money in the Israeli weapons industry – Athlone Global Security.
