RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinian lawmaker Mustafa Barghouthi visited the Gaza Strip on Tuesday with a delegation from his political party the Palestinian National Initiative.

Barghouthi visited Shifa Hospital in Gaza City to visit Palestinians injured in the ongoing Israeli military offensive.

He told reporters that what he saw was enough proof of "the scale of Israeli crime and genocidal war against our people in Gaza."

Barghouthi added that the "crimes that the Netanyahu government committed and the extermination of whole families will not go unquestioned."

He urged the international community to sue Israeli leaders in international criminal courts.

Barghouthi said he would visit victims’ families and have meetings with representatives of Palestinian factions.
