Hamas Responds to HRW: We Didn't Mean to Hurt Civilians


In a response to a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report which accused Hamas of war crimes against Israelis, the terror group has claimed it did not mean to harm innocent civilians.

HRW issued a rare condemnation of Gaza terrorists on Monday for war crimes, saying that “Palestinian armed groups made clear in their statements that harming civilians was their aim last month. There is simply no legal justification for launching rockets at populated areas.”
