The Hamas-ruled police chief, 230 other police officers and police men were killed during the 22-day Israeli military offensive on Gaza that ended on Sunday, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

Islam Shahwan, the Hamas-rule Police forces spokesman told a news conference held in Gaza that "General Tawfiq Jabber and 230 police officers and police men were killed during the brutal aggression on the Gaza Strip."

The Israeli army had carried out a 22-day military offensive on the Gaza Strip, killing more than 1,400 people and wounded 5,500 others. The offensive stopped on Sunday following an Israeli unilateral ceasefire.

Shahwan appealed to the international police associations as well as the European Union and Geneva police protocols to form a query committee to investigate why Israel did attack the blue police headquarters and its men.

He added that in spite of the war that was carried out on the Gaza Strip round the clock, the police forces had not stopped its activities helping the people who had their homes destroyed and carrying casualties to the hospitals.

Shahwan called on all Gaza policemen and police officers to get back to work, wearing their blue uniform, adding "Israel was aiming at creating a status of chaos in the Gaza Strip by striking on the police headquarters."
