B'Tselem (] B'Tselem said that they make distinctions using the "civilians not participating in hostilities" classification. [B'Tselem Official written response to the CAMERA Organisation, Fax & Press Release, 22nd August 2007]

B'Tselem's statistics have also been criticised for allegedly defining as "civilian" Palestinians those killed while engaged in attacks on Israelis. [ [http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=3&x_outlet=12&x_article=1265 B'Tselem's Annual Casualty Figures Questioned] , CAMERA Media Analyses, January 3, 2007.] In response to B'Tselem's 2004 summary of casualties, the Independent Media Review and Analysis (IMRA), an Israeli digest, argued that "the figures reported by B'Tselem about noncombatant minors includes children shielding combatants as they prepare and launch Qassam rockets or shielding gunmen as they engage in battle against Israeli forces." This was in response to a clarification by B'Tselem that the term "did not participate in hostilities" may include bystanders.

Caroline B. Glick, deputy managing editor of "The Jerusalem Post", asserted in an editorial that B'Tselem is a radical leftist organization with a documented history of falsifying and distorting data.
