Sarid: Army Uses Illicit Weapons Against Palestine

Sarid: “Israeli Occupying Army Uses Illicit Weapons Against Palestinians”

GAZA - - Former Israeli Minister of Education and current Knesset member, Yossi Sarid, warned Tuesday of publishing confidential information on the missiles used by Israeli warplanes while perpetrating extrajudicial executions of Palestinian resistance activists in the Nusseirat refugee camp, middle of Gaza Strip, three weeks ago.

Sarid, the leader of the "Merez" leftist party, was quoted by the Israeli radio service as saying that the Israeli army used illicit and deadly weapons in the Nusseirat strike, leading to the killing of 14 Palestinians.

Sarid told the radio that he has recently obtained information indicating that the Israeli army has used a special type of weapons during this crime in the Gaza Strip.

In response to inquiries by the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, Sarid said that the information he has got are of ‘public significance’ and that he did not obtain them through the committee.

He also confirmed that the Military Observation Committee of the Knesset asked him to listen to the Israeli army’s argument before he publishes such information.

Sarid asserted he would comply with the said request.

Israeli military helicopters fired two missiles on a Palestinain civilian car three weeks ago in the Nusseirat refugee camp, middle of Gaza Strip, killing 14 Palestinians, including a physician, and wounding dozens others.
