Hamas called for the prosecution of Israeli leaders at the International Criminal Court (ICC), after Tel Aviv admitted the use of phosphorous munitions against Palestinians during the Gaza war.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the international community should take legal actions against Israeli the leaders who authorized the use of white phosphorous bombs during the Israeli offensive on Gaza last January.
In an official report to the United Nations, Israel admitted that its military forces fired shells that contained incendiary white phosphorus at a UN Relief and Works Agency compound in Gaza.
"It's a clear recognition that Israel committed war crimes in the Gaza Strip", said Barhoum.
"So according to this clear recognition by Israel, there should be practical steps taken by the international community to start prosecuting the leaders of the Zionist enemy as war criminals," he added.
A report released by a UN fact-finding team headed by South African Judge Richard Goldstone in September 2009 accused Israeli military forces of war crimes during the offensive which killed more than 1,400 people in Gaza.
Israel had initially boycotted the report, describing it as inaccurate.
However, the regime issued document titled "Gaza Operation Investigations: An Update" on Friday, facing a threat by Goldstone to refer war crimes suspicions to an international court unless Israel and the Palestinians launched investigations into the war.
Palestinians also submitted their report on the war to UN on Friday.
