Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum slammed on Tuesday Israel’s war minister Avigdor Lieberman for praising the Israeli sniper who fatally shot a disarmed Palestinian protester near Gaza borders.
Barhoum said commending the Israeli sniper who shot an unarmed Palestinian boy near Gaza border fence amounts to an official legitimization of murder and recognition of the crimes committed against civilians.
Barhoum added that such moves reflect the unabated terror inflicted on the Palestinian people.
He called for holding the occupation government and its leaders accountable for their crimes and for taking deterrent penalties so as to bring such crimes to an end.
