Justice minister: Israel deliberately involved in genocide, ethnic cleansing in Gaza

Tehran, July 30, IRNA – Justice Minister Mostafa Pour-Mohammdi in a letter to his counterparts in Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said on Wednesday that Israel is deliberately involved in genocide and ethnic cleansing in Gaza to eliminate Muslims who are historic and real owners of Palestine.

Unfortunately, the world witnessed another chapter of the Zionist regime's crimes against Palestine once again, he said, referring to widescale bombardment of Gaza from the air, land and the sea and massacre of over 1,000 civilians, most of whom were women and children.

Inactiion of the international tribunals in case of the former crimes Israel perpatrated against the Palestinians, is responsible for the current carnage and the crimes against humanity underway in Gaza.

He said that the unprecedented tragedy demonstrated lack of legal action by the international tribunals so far to bring the Israeli leaders to justice, citing the war criminals of the fomer Yugoslavia brought to dock at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

He called for using OIC's capacities to stop the Israeli crimes in Gaza.
