Qatar strongly condemns the Israeli occupation’s bombing of a camp for displaced people in Rafah

By Manal Abdel Fattah

The State of Qatar condemned in the strongest terms the Israeli bombing that targeted a camp for displaced people in Rafah in the Gaza Strip, leaving dozens of martyrs and wounded, and considered it a serious violation of international laws that would double the worsening humanitarian crisis in the besieged Strip.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed the need for the Israeli authorities to adhere to the decision of the International Court of Justice calling for an end to the military attacks on Rafah, and called on the international community to take urgent action to prevent the commission of genocide, provide full protection for civilians, and prevent the occupation forces from implementing their plans aimed at forcing them to forcibly move from the city. Which has become a final refuge for hundreds of thousands of displaced people inside the Gaza Strip.

The Ministry expressed the State of Qatar’s concern that the bombing would complicate ongoing mediation efforts and hinder reaching an agreement for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the exchange of prisoners and detainees, which would exacerbate the effects of this war and its repercussions on regional and international security.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated the State of Qatar’s firm position on the justice of the Palestinian issue, the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, and the establishment of its independent state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
