Palestinian UN representative : Netanyahu ‘is a liar’

Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour has angrily accused Israel of carrying out the deadly attack at the Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza, calling Israel’s Netanyahu “a liar” for blaming the strike on the ISIL (ISIS) group.

“Now they change the story to try to blame the Palestinians. It is a lie,” Mansour said during a press conference at the UN headquarters.

“He is a liar. His digital spokesperson tweeted that Israel did the hit thinking that there is, around this hospital, a base for Hamas, and then he deleted that tweet,” he added.

Mansour also pointed out that a spokesman for the Israeli military previously suggested that hospitals could be possible targets and should be evacuated.

“They are responsible for that crime and they cannot fabricate stories to deal with it.”
