Egypt’s condemnation of the storming of Israeli forces
Egypt announced its condemnation of the Israeli forces’ incursion into the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, which resulted in 9 deaths and injuries.
This came in a statement by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, regarding the storming of the camp, on Thursday morning.
The statement also mentioned that Egypt called for an immediate halt to attacks on Palestinian cities, warning of the situation getting out of control.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry said that the attacks will have serious repercussions on security and stability in the occupied Palestinian territories and the region, noting that they undermine efforts to revive the peace process and establish a Palestinian state on the June 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Egypt also called on the international community to assume its responsibilities to defuse the violence, put an end to the attacks on the Palestinian people, protect civilians in accordance with the rules of international law and the decisions of international legitimacy related to the legitimate Palestinian rights, and hold Israel responsible as the occupying state.
The death toll from the Israeli army’s storming of the camp rose to 9, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, which noted that cases of suffocation and injuries were recorded due to the storming of Jenin Governmental Hospital.
The Palestinian presidency also described what the Israeli forces are doing in Jenin as a “massacre”, noting that the international community is watching it suspiciously silently.
