France condemns attack on Gaza hospital

Paris, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) The French government today strongly condemned the attack on a hospital in the Gaza Strip that left hundreds of Palestinian victims.

Both President Emmanuel Macron and the Foreign Ministry repudiated the crime, a violation of International Humanitarian Law.

Nothing justifies the attack on a hospital or civilians, the president warned in his account on the social network X, a bombing attributed in Palestine and other Arab countries to Israel, which denied its responsibility.

Macron expressed regret for the Palestinian victims and demanded clarification of what happened. The attack on the hospital in Gaza occurred in the context of systematic and indiscriminate Israeli bombings against the Strip in retaliation for the armed incursion of the Hamas militia into its territory.

The escalation of the conflict has left thousands of civilian victims on both sides of the border, although until now the West had focused its reaction on the murdered Israelis, wielding Tel Aviv’s right to defend itself, but without citing decades of occupation, colonization and crimes.

The new and lethal wave of violence in the region multiplies calls for a two-state solution living in peace and security.
