Tutu: Israel actions against Gaza bears "hallmarks of war crimes"

Tutu: Israel actions against Gaza bears "hallmarks of war crimes": "Johannesburg - South African Nobel laureate and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on Sunday said Israel's air attacks on the Gaza Strip 'bears all the hallmarks of war crimes.'

'In the context of total aerial supremacy, in which one side in the conflict deploys lethal aircraft against opponents with no means of defending themselves, the bombardment bears all the hallmarks of war crimes,' Tutu said in a statement.

'It is a blight not only on the Middle East, but on the entire world - and particularly world leaders who have consistently failed the people of Palestine and Israel over the past 60 years,' Tutu added.

Israel launched air raids on the Strip on Saturday in response to rocket fire from Palestinian militants in the salient."
