Egypt condemns the collapse of the truce and rejects displacement

Egypt on Friday condemned the collapse of the truce between Hamas and Israel, and warned again of the consequences of the forced displacement of Palestinians from their land.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Egypt expressed its strong condemnation of the collapse of the truce and the renewed violent bombing and Israeli military operations against the Gaza Strip, which resulted in renewed casualties among Palestinian civilians.
It also considered the matter a serious setback and an underestimation by the Israeli side of all the efforts made that sought over the past days to extend the truce in order to spare the blood of innocent Palestinians and ensure the implementation of more urgent humanitarian aid to the residents of the Gaza Strip.
Egypt warned of the consequences of expanding Israeli military operations in the southern Gaza Strip, and Israeli officials encouraged calls to displace Palestinians outside the Gaza borders. She stressed that this is a flagrant violation of Israel’s obligations as the occupying power, and of all provisions of international humanitarian law, especially the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
Egypt also reaffirmed its firm position rejecting the forced displacement of Palestinians outside the borders of their land, as it is a red line that will not be allowed to be crossed.
Cairo renewed its call to influential international parties and relevant UN bodies, led by the Security Council, to assume their responsibilities towards ensuring the protection of Palestinian civilians in Gaza, and to stop attempts and plans to push them to flee outside their country, stressing the importance of actually implementing the two resolutions issued by the Security Council and the General Assembly in this regard.
Diaa Rashwan, head of the State Information Service, had confirmed that Egypt greatly regrets breaking the temporary humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip, and that it is currently making every effort with partners to return to the truce as soon as possible and extend it for further periods.
He added that efforts are continuing to reach a truce that allows confronting the dangerous humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip, which have reached the point of catastrophe, whether by stopping the war on them, or by quickly and intensively entering humanitarian and relief aid to them.
