Hamas on Saturday, on the 36th anniversary of Sabra and Shatila massacre, called for prosecuting Israeli leaders responsible for the crime at international courts.
In a statement released by Hamas’s Office for Refugees Affairs, the movement said that Sabra and Shatila massacre is part of an endless series of atrocities committed by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians.
Hamas affirmed that the heinous massacre will never be forgotten with the passing of time, and that the international community has responsibility for bringing Israeli leaders to international courts.
Hamas called on the Lebanese government to show solidarity with Palestinian refugees in Lebanon by granting them civil, economic, and social rights.
It also urged friends of Palestinian people all over the world to support them against US attack on the refugees issue by cutting aid to UNRWA.
Saturday marks the 36th anniversary of Sabra and Shatila massacre at the hands of the Israeli occupation army, a militia close to Lebanon’s Kataeb party and the South Lebanon Army.
The number of victims in this appalling massacre ranges between 750 and 3,500, most of whom are unarmed civilians, including women, children, and elderly people.
