Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman described Israeli army of being “the most moral” in the world after killing four unarmed Palestinian protesters in Gaza, including 14-year-old boy.
"We saw that the IDF (Israeli occupation army) is the most moral army in the world,” Lieberman said as he commented on the murder of the Palestinian boy, who took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza. Mohammed Ayoub.
Lieberman claimed that his arm “made the maximum effort to avoid hurting innocents.” Maybe he did not see listen to international rights groups or different UN bodies and officials, who confirmed that Lieberman’s army uses lethal forces against unarmed demonstrators.
“I once again tell the residents of Gaza, a secret for living long: Don't go near the fence,” he said. Again, it seems that he forgot that the Gaza borders are about 10km behind the barbed wire placed to the east of Gaza, which Israel claims it is its border with the coastal enclave.
UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov criticised on Friday the brutal Israeli killing of the peaceful Palestinian boy in Gaza.
“It is OUTRAGEOUS to shoot at children!” he wrote on his twitter account after the Israeli occupation forces had shot dead the 14-year-old Palestinian boy Mohammed Ayoub in Gaza.
“How does the killing of a child in Gaza today help peace?” he asked, giving his own answer: “It doesn’t! It fuels anger and breeds more killing.”
Matthias Schmale, the Gaza director of operations of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), said Ayoub was the third student of UN-run schools to be killed in recent weeks.
“Deeply disturbing news that child killed yesterday (Friday) was yet another student at UNRWA school – two others were killed previously,” Schamale wrote on Twitter. “Children should never be targets.”
