(PIC)-- Hamas Movement condemned the Israeli court's decision to acquit the Israeli occupation army of killing American activist Rachel Corrie.
Corrie was crushed to death by an army bulldozer when she was trying to prevent demolition of Palestinian homes in Rafah on March 16, 2003.
An official source in the movement said: "We, in Hamas, strongly condemn this Zionist unjust decision acquitting the criminal killers ... we consider this acquittal an offense to be added to the series of racist crimes against the Palestinian people and the supporters of its just cause."
"It (the acquittal) represents a desperate attempt to discourage activists and supporters of the Palestinian people from continuing supporting them against the occupation policies and criminal plans", the source added.
The Islamic resistance movement also denounced the silence of the international community and United States regarding this acquittal, and called on human rights and humanitarian organizations to prosecute the Zionist war criminals for their persistent crimes against the Palestinian land and people.
