The Hamas government in tried to distance itself Saturday from a statement it made earlier this week in which it expressed regret for harming Israeli civilians in rocket attacks.




The apology for the rockets was part of the Hamas government's response to a UN report that alleged both Hamas and committed war crimes during 's three-week offensive last winter.







"We apologize for any harm that might have come to Israeli civilians," the Hamas government wrote.







On Saturday, the government claimed the response to the UN was misinterpreted. "The report that was submitted regarding the Goldstone report does not include any apologies and what took place was an incorrect interpretation of some of its wording," the government said in a statement.
