The Government Media Office (GMO) said that Israel has repeatedly committed crimes of genocide and ethnic cleansing against civilians in the Gaza Strip, noting that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stole the bodies of martyrs and returned them back mutilated and unidentifiable, so that they can cover up the crime.
The GMO explained, in a statement on Thursday, that the IOF has committed field executions against dozens of Palestinian civilians during the genocidal war it has been waging in the Gaza Strip. The IOF shot and killed dozens of civilians before burying them in mass graves using bulldozers such as what happened east of Al-Shujaiya neighborhood east of Gaza City.
The bodies of 80 martyrs, who had been killed by the IOF weeks ago, were handed to their families for burial in Rafah Governorate after organs of their bodies were stolen, the statement highlighted.
The IOF refused to specify the execution locations to cover up its heinous crime, as the bodies of martyrs arrived badly mutilated, in a clear indication that the IOF had stolen vital organs of them.
The GMO stressed that the IOF has killed thousands of civilians deliberately, intentionally and without distinguishing civilians from fighters.
The Office concluded its statement by calling on all international courts to prosecute Israel, its army and political, military, and security leaders for committing these heinous crimes, praising the great legal efforts being exerted by South Africa which has accused Israel before the International Court of Justice of committing genocide in the Gaza Strip.
