Abu Mazen: Hamas lied - 850 terrorists killed in Operation Protective Edge

'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen says that Hamas lied about its casualties in Operation Protective Edge: 850 terrorists were killed, exactly as estimated by the IDF.
Another point Abbas touched on was the death toll in Operation Protective Edge. Hamas has been busily pushing an inflated civilian death toll to world media outlets that rely on it for figures given the lack of objective investigation in the Hamas stronghold of Gaza, and in doing so Hamas uses a variety of tactics to skew the numbers.
Abbas burst the claims, saying "Hamas says the number of dead from their ranks didn't go past 50, when in actuality over 850 Hamas members and their family members were killed."
Hamas's health ministry has claimed just slightly over 2,000 Gazans dead in the operation. Given that, Abbas's figure, which didn't include the number of killed terrorists from other groups such as Islamic Jihad, would support Israeli reports placing the ratio of civilian to terrorist casualties at roughly 1:1an almost unprecedented achievement in urban warfare.
Gee, you think Hamas would lie?  Abu Mazen obviously does.
