Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke on the phone Wednesday with the UN envoy to the Middle East, Nikolai Maldanov.

Liberman expressed his indignation at the way the international community has been ignoring a series of assassinations and executions of Palestinian Arabs in the Ein el Hilweh camp in Lebanon and in the the Gaza Strip.

"The international community's disregard for dozens of dead and wounded proves once again the hypocrisy and double standards of the world - that it ignores these serious events while condemning Israel's justified actions against terrorism," Liberman said.

The Defense Minister told the UN envoy that he expects the issue of the assassinations and executions of Palestinian Arabs by their fellow Arabs to be discussed at the next meeting of the UN Security Council.
