New Israeli attack on Gaza raises wave of condemnation in Middle East

Cairo, May 27 (Prensa Latina) The Arab world condemned in strong terms an Israeli attack against a displacement camp in the south of the Gaza Strip, causing at least 35 deaths and dozens of injuries.

The secretary general of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, wrote on X criticizing the military operation against a UN camp. “We will present this new crime before the international court so that their bodies strengthen the evidence file that requires those responsible to be brought to justice,” he wrote.

The Arab Parliament spoke out in similar terms after pointing out that Israel violates international laws, customs, and resolutions that demand the end of its offensive against the city of Rafah, near the Egyptian border.

The organization issued a statement demanding an accounting for the crimes against the Palestinian people and concrete measures to end these attacks, and rejected “the positions of those countries that support the occupation, led by the United States.”

Egypt considered that the bombing was a new and flagrant violation of the provisions of international humanitarian law and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 on the protection of civilians in times of war.

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs considered this tragic event “an attempt to continue attacking defenseless civilians. Israel must comply with its legal obligations as an occupying power and implement the measures dictated by the International Court of Justice regarding the immediate cessation of military operations in Rafah,” it stressed.

Kuwait also condemned the attack, considering that it exemplifies the genocide carried out against the Palestinians, stating that this policy requires immediate and decisive intervention by the international community to force Israel to comply with relevant international resolutions.

The Foreign Ministries of Jordan and Qatar also joined the wave of criticism over the attack.
