Palestinian lawyers threaten to prosecute Israel

Aug. 12, 2014 11:29 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 12, 2014 11:29 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian lawyers in the Gaza Strip are “preparing to legally and internationally prosecute Israel” for its offensive on Gaza and targeting civilians.

Legal expert Abd al-Karim Shbeir said in a statement that the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip violated all international laws.

Shbeir added that Israel has used “prohibited weapons that violate international law.”

Shbeir held the international community was responsible for the “disastrous results of their silence and for giving the green light for killing and destroying Palestinians.”

Maher Bashir, chief of the Islamic Lawyer’s Union’s Syndicate, warned of committing more war crimes against Palestinians especially if the international community remains silent.

Bashir called upon the Arab League to act to stop the killing of civilians and destroying their homes.
