Hamas to complain to UN over Israeli airstrikes

Oct. 24, 2012 9:10 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 25, 2012 4:49 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The government in Gaza will file a complaint with the United Nations over Israel's airstrikes, ministers said Wednesday, after a week of bombing left at least six Palestinians dead.

At a weekly cabinet meeting, ministers urged the international community to intervene and stop the airstrikes, and announced they would complain to the UN.

Militant groups have fired a barrage of rockets at Israeli military bases and into southern Israel and on Wednesday formed a joint operation room to respond to any further airstrikes.

The Hamas cabinet also condemned Israel's boarding of a Gaza-bound aid ship attempting to break Israel's blockade of the enclave. Israel's navy boarded the Estelle boat on Saturday and brought it to Ashdod port in Israel.

Ministers accused Israel of piracy and violating the freedom of activists.

The cabinet applauded the emir of Qatar's "historic visit" to the Gaza Strip, and urged other heads of state to visit.
