London, 28 Shawal 1436/13 August 2015 (MINA) – Over 30,000 of pro-Palestinian supporters have signed an online petition demanding that Scotland Yard arrest the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for war crimes against Palestinian civilians once he steps foot on British soil this coming September.
“Benjamin Netanyahu is to hold talks in London this September,” the petition’s author, a British national who goes by the name Damian Moran, wrote. “Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the UK for the massacre of over 2,000 civilians in 2014.”
The petition was created through the British parliament website. It mandates that British lawmakers debate a motion if a petition reaches 100,000 online signatures, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Last year, Israel’s 51-day offensive on the blockaded Gaza Strip took away the lives of at least 2,200 Palestinians, mostly civilian women and children. (T/P011/R03)
