Foreign Ministry calls rocket fire from Gaza a 'war crime'

The firing of rocket by Hamas at Israeli citizens from within populated Palestinian areas is a war crime that harms both Israelis and Palestinians, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday evening in a response to a day of rocket fire that left a student at Sapir College dead. "Hamas's terrorism does not only endanger the lives of Israeli and Palestinian civilians, it also endangers peace and stability in the region as a whole," the ministry said in a statement.
