Description
TEL AVIV, November 21, 2011 (WAFA) – Israeli Military Prosecutors Office decided Monday not to prosecute former Givati Brigade commander, Ilan Malka, who is responsible for killing 21 members of al-Samuni family during an air strike that targeted the city of Gaza, according to Maariv newspaper.

It said that Malka approved bombing a building in Zaytouna neighborhood in Gaza, killing 21 Palestinians and injuring another 19.

Military investigating police has previously interrogated Malka, the brigade commander during the Israeli attack on Gaza, who claimed that he was “unaware of the civilians’ presence in the building.”

The current Israeli public prosecutor will only reprimand Malka instead of putting him on trail.
