Tunis — The Prime Ministry condemned, on Thursday, the killing of Hamas military chief Ahmad Jaabari and other Palestinian activists after the Israeli air strikes on Wednesday, on the Gaza Strip.

"The Israeli offensive is against human rights and international conventions," reads a Prime Ministry statement, urging the international community to force Israel to stop its attacks on the unarmed Palestinian people.

The Prime Ministry hailed the brotherly Palestinian people's resistance and militancy to recover their legitimate and historical rights, stressing that the success of Arab Spring countries in paving the way for free and democratic States will certainly help mobilise the international community for the support and defence of Palestinians' legitimate rights.

At least 11 Palestinians have been killed and 115 others injured since the launching on Wednesday of Israeli air strikes on Gaza.

Besides, a rocket was fired on Thursday, from the Gaza Strip on the city of Kiryat Malachi, South of Israel, killing 3 people.
