Noam Bedein: Eshkol Council Complains to UN After Gaza regime fires chemical weapons at Western Negev residents

Noam Bedein, Sderot Media Centre, Jan 3, 2012


Haim Jelin, chairman of the Eshkol Regional Council, on Monday forwarded a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, complaining of the use of chemical weapons against residents of southern Israel by the Gaza regime.

 The letter describes how phosphorous-tipped missiles were fired at a farm in the Eshkol Regional Council on Sunday. Use of phosphorus as munitions directed at civilians is prohibited by the Geneva Convention.

“The Israel Defense Forces, charged with protecting the residents of the State of Israel, are criticized and judged due to their being the military of a UN member state,” Jelin's letter said, adding that “in contrast, Hamas, the 'neighborhood bully,' is not subject to international laws, and feels free to use illegal weaponry against an innocent civilian population – without being judged or criticized by any international body. I call upon you to put an end to this hypocrisy! In the western Negev region lives an entire population that suffers the consequences of prolonged regional combat, and attention must be paid to this.”
