Daily scoffs at Netanyahu's remarks on his 'moral army'

Tehran, July 23, IRNA - 'Kayhan International' on Wednesday scoffed at the remarks of the criminal Zionist regime's Premier Benjamin Netanyahu that “Israel’s army is a moral army like no other. It does not aspire to hurt even one innocent person, not even one.”

If that is the case, then how come the Amnesty International has called for urgent international action to protect civilians in the besieged city of Gaza, which has been under vicious Israeli attacks for over two weeks now, questioned the English-language paper.

Certainly Philip Luther, the Middle East and North Africa Program director at Amnesty International, is not an anti-Semite, when he says: "Israel’s relentless air assault on Gaza has seen its forces flagrantly disregard civilian life and property, which must be protected under international humanitarian law,” highlighted the daily.

Into the argument, how can Netanyahu explain what Amnesty declares in its new report: "Over 1,780 homes have been completely destroyed or rendered uninhabitable by Israeli attacks, leaving at least 600 dead, thousands injured, and over 10,600 Palestinians homeless.”

Netanyahu and the criminal Zionist regime are fully aware that what is happening in Gaza is a war crime, pure and simple, stressed the paper adding that they know exactly why without even listening to the Amnesty director’s latest comment in this respect: "Deliberately attacking a civilian home is a war crime, and the overwhelming scale of destruction of civilian homes, in some cases with entire families inside them, points to a distressing pattern of repeated violations of the laws of war.”

The usurper regime is largely aware just how small and confined Gaza is – just 25 miles long and just a few miles wide. It is illegally blocked in by closed borders in the north, east and south. There is no route out by the sea to the west with an Israeli naval blockade either, which makes it a perfect target for any Israeli assault from land, sea and air.

For Palestinians living in Gaza today, simply spending time in their own homes, frequenting a mosque, going to a hospital or to school has become a dangerous enterprise since any one of these architectural edifices caning there become at any moment a target for the Israeli army – a potential target Netanyahu callously claims "Israel’s army does not aspire to hit!” derided the paper.

And to make our point even further, we haven’t even started talking about the anti-Israel demonstrations across the globe, in which angry protesters are calling for an immediate end to the Israeli massacre of Palestinians in Gaza, the paper pointed out.

The protesters wave placards that read: "Israeli army commits genocide in Gaza.” They also condemn the international community’s silence on "Israel’s shameless human rights violations,” while accusing the US and its allies of supporting the ongoing massacre in Gaza, highlighted the paper.

In light of the above, the daily concluded by saying that Netanyahu should not even think about trying to mask his inhumanity.
