Qureia:: Hamas killing kids in revenge would be justified

Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia warned Israel that its air strike Tuesday that killed 14 Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip will invite a response from the group, adding that any retaliation for the killings will be justified.

'This crime cannot be accepted ... No crime goes unpunished,' Qureia said at a meeting of the Palestinian Cabinet. 'For sure there will be retaliation, and the retaliation will be justified if it happens.'"
