Gaza Interior Ministry says Israel not required to justify killing civilians 27Mar11 March 28, 2011

The Palestinian Information Centre -  27 March 2011

Israel is apparently not required to justify taking the lives of innocent civilians, Ehab al-Ghussein, spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Interior and national security has said after an Israeli shelling that killed two and injured two others in the northern Gaza Strip.

Reconnaissance drones hit a car east of the Jabalya refugee camp after Palestinian factions had clarified they would maintain a calm and deter popular attacks as long as Israel abstained from further aggression.

Ghussein called on the international community to pressure Israel in order to stop the attacks claiming the lives of civilians.

Spokesman for the Gaza high commission of emergencies Adham Abu Salmiyya identified one of those killed as Sabri Asaliyya, 22, but said the second victim has not yet been identified. They were hit by a reconnaissance drone that bombed a car on Al-Sakka Street in Jabalya, he said.

The strike has brought the count of those who died in Israeli attacks in the past week to 13. A total of 50 have been injured, some critically.
