both Hamas and Fattah terrorists murdered civilians during Hamas’ takeover of the Gaza strip.
“Hamas and Fatah committed “grave breaches” of international law in their brief civil war in the Gaza Strip in June, a Palestinian human rights group said on Tuesday, detailing a series of extra-judicial killings.
In a new report, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said 161 Palestinians, of whom 41 were civilians, were killed during fighting between June 7 and June 14 in which Hamas Islamists took control of the territory from secular Fatah.
“The two sides perpetrated grave breaches of the provisions of international law concerning internal armed conflicts, including extra-judicial and willful killings and shooting at combatants and civilians after capturing them,” The PCHR said. “
But wait, both terror groups have been intentionally murdering Israeli civilians for decades. It’s apparent that the PCHR draws a line on its concern for human rights where the lives of Jewish civilians are concerned. For the PCHR, Jewish civil/human rights just don’t count. More here. *L* KGS
TINSC adds: “One of these days, the Arabs will take responsibility for their actions and stop blaming “infidels”. I suppose it’s a good thing for the PCHR to take issue with this kind of violence. Is the PCHR taking a position opposing rocket/morter attacks on Israeli civilians?”
Good comment and question. I’ll have “ol’ Squeaky the flying pig” waiting in the wings for the PCHR’s statement of condemnation over the launching of missiles from Gaza into Israeli civilian centers, as well as its condemnation of using children in the Palestinians dirty terrorist war against Israel.
