Judiciary Official Asks for Trying Israel in Int'l Tribunal

TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Head of Iran's Judiciary Ebrahim Raeesi on Saturday called for trying the Israeli regime in a competent international court.

Meantime, he pointed out that no one in the UN, the Security Council and the International Court of Justice in the Hague pays attention to the issue.

A group of deputies of Iranian Judiciary and Foreign Ministry are to pursue tackling Zionist regime's crimes, he continued.

Zionist regime has breached international conventions through attacking over residential places and schools, he told the Iranian students news agency reporters.

Slaughter of women and children, attacks on ambulances, hospitals and destruction of schools and inhabited houses are signs of genocide and violating civilians' rights, he added.

Israeli 22-day long offensives over Gaza Strip have pushed the death toll to about 1199 Palestinians and left some 5220 wounded. It has blockaded the impoverished area since June 2007 when Hamas took control of the city. Israel then tightened its seizer over the area banning the arrival of required supplies including food and medicine.
