Israel 'does not commit war crimes', PM says after Gaza report

AFP , Monday 22 Jun 2015

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted Monday that Israel "does not commit war crimes" after a UN report accused Israel of incurring unprecented suffering on Palestnians in last summer's offensive on Gaza.

"Israel defends itself against a terror organisation which calls for its destruction and that itself carries out war crimes," Netanyahu said in a statement, referring to Islamist movement Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip.
