Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah describes Israel's offensive in Gaza as war crime

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia: The king of Saudi Arabia Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz on Friday condemned the silence of the international community over Israel’s offensive against the Palestinians in the Gaza strip and described it as a war crime.

“We see the blood of our brothers in Palestine shed in collective massacres that did not exclude anyone, and war crimes against humanity without scruples, humanity or morality,” a foreign news agency quoted King Abdullah as saying in a brief speech read out on his behalf on state television.

“This (international) community, which has observed silently what is happening in the whole region, has been indifferent to what is happening, as if what is happening is not its concern. Silence that has no justification.”

   

The news agency further said that King Abdullah’s speech followed criticism by some Saudis on social media including prominent clerics over Riyadh’s quiet response to the Gaza crisis.
