Gaza - Ma'an - More efforts must be made to track down Israeli war criminals and try them for their crimes in Gaza, said Minister of Justice and Prisoners' Issues in the de facto government Muhammad Farraj Al-Ghol on Saturday.

In a statement released to the public Al-Ghol called for an end to the massacres in Gaza and condemned the Israeli leaders responsible for the crimes in the Gaza Strip.

He called for an end to the violence, and the release of all the non-combatants detained by Israel during their attacks. He announced that the Israeli practice of using civilians as human shields before detaining them was a crime and showed the carelessness of human life on the part of Israeli soldiers. He called the practice a serious violation of human rights.
