Hamas rejects UN report it may have committed war crimes

The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) Gaza's Hamas rulers are rejecting a United Nations report that its fighters may have committed war crimes.

Senior Hamas official Ghazi Hamad said Monday that its rockets and mortars were aimed at Israeli military sites, not at civilians.

Hamad criticized the U.N. investigators for what he said was a false balance between victims and killers.

The report found that both Israel and Palestinian militant groups may have committed war crimes during the conflict last July.

More than 2,200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the fighting, according to U.N. and Palestinian officials, while 73 people, including six civilians, died on the Israeli side.
