Egypt strongly condemns Israel’s deliberate shelling of refugee tents in Rafah

Egypt has strongly condemned the deliberate shelling by Israeli forces of the refugee tents in the Palestinian city of Rafah, which resulted in hundreds of deaths and injuries among the defenseless displaced Palestinians, considering this act a new and blatant violation of international humanitarian law and the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 regarding the protection of civilians in times of war.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, Egypt considers this tragic attack a continuation of the targeting of unarmed civilians and a systematic policy aimed at expanding the scope of killing and destruction in the Gaza Strip, making it uninhabitable.

Egypt demanded that Israel comply with its legal obligations as an occupying power and implement the measures issued by the International Court of Justice regarding the immediate cessation of military operations and any other actions in the Palestinian city of Rafah.

Egypt renewed its call for the Security Council and influential international parties to intervene immediately to ensure an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and to end military operations in the Palestinian city of Rafah.

Egypt also reiterated the necessity for the international community to fulfill its legal and humanitarian responsibilities to provide protection for Palestinian civilians and prevent them from being exposed to life-threatening dangers.
