Chile condemns Israel’s military offensive in Rafah

Santiago de Chile, May 7 (Prensa Latina) The Chilean government on Tuesday strongly condemned Israel's military offensive over the city of Rafah and expressed its deep concern for consequences for more than one million Palestinians, including 600,000 children.

A Foreign Ministry statement recalls that the attacks over civilian population are a serious violation of the international humanitarian law.

Israeli forces took control of the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing and blocked the movement of people and the flow of humanitarian assistance into this enclave, which has served as a refuge for those displaced by Tel Aviv’s bombings and ground attacks since last October.

The Chilean government called for an immediate ceasefire and for an agreement that would put an end to the suffering of the Palestinians in Gaza, hostages and families.
