’Israel’ Scraps UN, EU Calls for Investigation into Gaza Bloodshed

Zionist war minister Avigdor Lieberman rejected both United Nations and European Union calls for an investigation into the murder of more than a dozen Palestinians by the occupation's military during demonstrations on the Gaza frontier.
In this respect, the coastal enclave of the besieged Gaza Strip has been shaken by the bloodiest episode in years despite peaceful sit-ins organized in commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the land day as "Israeli" occupation troops fired rounds of live ammunition at the protesting crowds.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, and the EU's top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, called for independent inquiries into the bloodshed, which left at least 16 martyrs so far, not to mention the more than 750 people wounded by live fire.
Lieberman, however, told "Israel's" public radio that there will not be an inquiry.
"From the standpoint of the soldiers, they did what had to be done," Lieberman claimed.
The Great Return March is a planned six-week demonstration calling for refugees and their descendants to be allowed back to their family homes in the "Israeli"-occupied Palestinian lands.
