Hamas is trying to take cynical advantage of a UN report accusing Israel of possible war crimes in Gaza to curry favor back home, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Malki told reporters at UN headquarters Thursday. The Palestinian Authority initially pushed for the Security Council to look into accusations Israel used disproportionate force and failed to protect civilians during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip last winter. The report also accuses Palestinian armed groups of possible war crimes.
