ISTANBUL, (PIC)-- Turkish lawyer Adam Yildirim has lodged a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General in Istanbul, against Gilad Sharon, the son of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, accusing him of "committing a crime against humanity."
The Mavi Marmara Istanbul Palace of Justice lawyers involved in the case of Adam Yildirim said that Gilad's statement to the Israeli press has to be considered as "a war crime and a crime against humanity".
“We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.” Gilad Sharon wrote in the Jerusalem Post.
The Turkish lawyer pointed out that the international community does not respond adequately to the Israeli oppressive practices, and turn a blind eye to the violation of international law by the Israeli entity.
I bear my responsibility for the sake of Palestine and of all humanity, the lawyer said, adding that he had made a criminal complaint in order to punish the Israeli officer "Gilad Sharon" for committing a crime against humanity.
