No criminal offense has been committed by the Israeli military over the assassination of a senior Hamas leader and more than a dozen other Palestinians, Tel Aviv says.
The probe -- carried out by Israel -- has concluded that the Israeli army acted on faulty intelligence and the assassinations were justified and did not constitute a criminal act.
On July 22, 2002, Israel dropped a one-ton bomb on a house in Gaza City, killing Hamas leader Salah Shehade along with 16 other Palestinians, including nine children.
The assassinations led to widespread international condemnation at that time.'
