Eyewitness testimony concerning Israeli war crimes

International lawyers are looking for eyewitness testimony concerning the Israeli war crimes of house demolitions, killings, and torture.  It is nice to go after the big wigs, but I think it would also be useful to nail a few of the Caterpillar drivers and child murderers.  As Israel becomes increasingly uninhabitable, people are going to want the option to live elsewhere, and the stark prospect that there is no other place to go without facing a stiff jail sentence may scare some of the IDF thugs into acting like human beings.  There is no more reason to let IDF soldiers off the hook than there is to let Nazi concentration camp guards off the hook.
