Statement calling on Israel to adhere to international humanitarian law

Gaza ANN)-Israel continues its unprovoked bombings.Israel has targeted a market in the Nuseirat neighborhood, one of the biggest markets that refugees relied on to buy their supplies.

Palestine health ministry officials say at least 200 people have been killed in Israeli strikes in Gaza in the last 24 hours. More than 18,000 people have been injured since Israel started its bombardment of the Gaza Strip on October 7, as per the Palestinian health ministry.

The UN agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA) confirmed that another six of its staff had been killed in Gaza, bringing the total killed to 35. Qatar’s ruling Emir has said Israel should not be given a green light for unconditional killing.

“We say enough; Israel shouldn’t be granted an unconditional green light and unrestricted authorisation to kill”, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani said.

Meanwhile, Israel’s president, Isaac Herzog, has accused Hezbollah in Lebanon of “playing with fire” in Israel’s north. In a joint media appearance with Emmanuel Macron, he described the Hamas attack as “one of the worst atrocities of modern times.” “We demand the immediate release of all our citizens,” Herzog said, speaking alongside French President Emmanuel Macron.

Also, Israeli air strikes continued to bombard Gaza on last Monday and its aircraft also struck southern Lebanon.

Meanwhile, six countries comprising the US, UK, Canada, France, Italy and Germany issued a joint statement calling on Israel to adhere to international humanitarian law while showing their support for its “right to defend itself against terrorism”.

Israel has suspended the aid that was intended to reach Gaza, and earlier this week, for the first time, a 20 truckload of aid arrived in Gaza. Israel’s airstrikes on the Rafah border in Egypt have threatened the convoy of aid vehicles stuck there to cross to Gaza, with Israel standing in front of them.

The attacks came hours after Hamas released two of its prisoners for the second time, shortly after Israel said that the war could continue for some time, expressing the fear that the war between Hamas and Israel would spread to the region.

This came as health authorities said the death toll in Gaza climbed to 4,600 in retaliatory strikes by Israel for the Hamas surprise attack on October 7 which killed 1,400 people.

The war in Gaza and the siege show the cruel hostility that Israel and the United States have for Palestine, while the world has turned a blind eye to the massacre that Israel is doing to the Palestinian people.
