GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The Minister of Justice in the Hamas government on Sunday denounced Israeli airstrikes against the coastal enclave and called for Israeli leaders to be tried as “war criminals,” a statement said.
Al-Ghoul condemned the killing of Gaza militants, saying “a crime like this will only increase the stubbornness, stability and resistance of the Palestinian people.”
He called on Arab and Islamic countries, as well as the international community, to put pressure on Israel to end its violent treatment of the Palestinians.
Al-Ghoul also called on the International Criminal Court to pursue Israeli leaders for their violations of international humanitarian law.
