Eldad: Put former Spanish PM on trial for NATO bombing of Belgrade

Responding to a Spanish court's decision to investigate Israeli officials over the assassination of a senior Hamas terrorist, MK Arye Eldad (National Union) on Thursday asked Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz to prosecute former Spanish officials over the 1999 NATO bombing of Belgrade. Eldad said that the former prime minister, defense minister and chief of staff should stand trial for hundreds of civilians killed in the Serbian capital. "Israel should put them on trial if the Spanish government does not instruct the court to cancel the charges forthwith," Eldad said.
