PCHR: Israeli offensive targeting innocent civilians

Aug. 3, 2014 11:29 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 4, 2014 10:54 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza human rights institutions called upon the international community and the world to condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinian civilians on Saturday.

Director of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights Raji al-Surani said in a press conference that what is happening n Gaza is a "continuous offensive targeting innocent civilians," adding that human rights institutions will hold the "Israeli criminals" accountable with every possible mean.

"What UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon said is 'selective' towards the ugly crimes against civilians. His duty is to protect civilians who are in the eye of the storm and a main target in this offensive," al-Surani said, lambasting the UN for not working to defend Gazan civilians under fire.

"The Israeli soldier captured is a 'classic' in the Third Geneva agreement," he added, stressing that capturing combatants was legal in the rules of war.

"Palestinians have the right to defend themselves according to international agreements," he added.
