World condemns Israel after deadly attack on civilians

The situation in Gaza

At least 45 people were reportedly killed in the Israeli attack.

After an Israeli airstrike on a camp outside Rafah killed at least 45 people, condemnation of Israel poured in. At the same time, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a “tragic mistake”.

Israel claims to have killed two Hamas commanders in the bombing of Tal-as Sultan. But reports say at least 43 others were killed, including several women and children.

The bombed tent camp is located in a humanitarian area where displaced Palestinians have sought refuge, and the Palestinian Foreign Ministry says the killing is further proof that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians and “refutes the occupation’s claims of the existence of safe zones in the Gaza Strip”.

A number of non-European leaders have condemned the attack, with EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell also demanding an explanation and condemning it “in the strongest terms”.

Italy’s defense minister, Guido Crosetto, says the bombings will have consequences for the Israeli people in the future.

– Israel is sowing hatred that will impact (its) children and grandchildren, he said.

“Barbaric” Netanyahu

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for his part, says he will do “everything possible” to bring the “barbaric” Netanyahu to justice.

Several other countries, such as Qatar, consider the attack a serious violation of international law and demand that Israel do everything possible to protect civilians.

The US, Israel’s main ally, said that Israel “has a right to go after Hamas” but “must take every precaution possible to protect civilians”.

The Israeli military defended its attack on Sunday night, but the country’s military prosecutor promised on Monday that the attack would be investigated. Benjamin Netanyahu himself claims it was a “tragic mistake”. The Palestinians are said to have died in a fire caused by the bombing, which then spread.

Meanwhile, large-scale protests have been organized in several European cities, including London, Madrid and Paris, where many thousands gathered to show their disgust at Israel’s invasion and bombing.
