Netanyahu: UN should investigate Hamas' war crimes, not IDF actions

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that if the UN wanted to investigate Israel's alleged war crimes they should investigate Hamas' war crimes, not those of the IDF soldiers who behaved in an exemplary way."


Netanyahu boasted about the IDF's achievements against Hamas and Islamic Jihad during Operation Protective edge, saying that "to demonstrate

the magnitude of the military achievement ... it's important to know ISIS' fighting force is half the fighting force the Gaza Strip organizations have, and world powers are estimating it'll take them years to fight ISIS."


He also praised the work done by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz. "I thank you for the cooperation. The nation saw they have who to count on," Netanyahu said.
