A group of soldiers who took part in Israel's assault in Gaza say widespread abuses were committed against civilians under "permissive" rules of engagement.

Breaking the Silence, a campaign group made up of Israeli soldiers, gathered anonymous accounts from 26 soldiers.

Israeli Defence Forces spokesperson, Lt Col Avital Leibovich, dismissed the report as hearsay.
