The Pro-Israeli lobby European Friends of Israel has filed a lawsuit in Belgium against Hamas leaders, demanding that they be brought to justice for war crimes. The lawsuit is intended as a response to Palestinian legal warfare against Israel and the various lawsuits filed against Israelis in international courts. It was filed in the name of 15 Israeli citizens who live in the Gaza periphery and who hold Belgian citizenship. Among the Hamas leaders targeted by the lawsuit are Damascus-based leader Khaled Mashaal, Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh, former foreign minister Mahmoud Zahar and Ahmed Jabri, who heads the group's military wing.
