Gazans: Israel Kills Civilians to Make Hamas Pay Price

TEHRAN (FNA)- Fears are growing over mounting civilian casualties in Gaza as Gazans began accusing Israel of deliberately aiming at civilians, to turn them against Hamas.



Shireen Shihab, 30, a resident of Gaza City, said Monday that Israelis and their pro-Western Palestinian allies from Fatah were "using the people," killing them to make Hamas pay a price.

Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert, one of two foreign doctors working at Gaza's biggest hospital, al-Shifa, told Iranian press tv that operating rooms were full and people were dying because of a lack of supplies.

Israel says it is not targeting civilians but Dr Gilbert said he had only seen two fighters among hundreds of casualties.

The UN says a million people in the territory are without electricity and many are facing "serious hunger" within days.

International aid workers says that Israeli leaders have exceeded boundaries of self-defense and perpetrated crimes against humanity in Gaza.

Iran has appealed to International Criminal Court to bring to justice the Israeli leaders for the war crimes they committed in Gaza since December 27.

ICC is the United Nations Court specialized in war crimes.
