Qatar calls for international probe into Israel’s attacks on Gaza hospitals

Qatar has vehemently denounced the forceful entry of Israeli occupation forces into the Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza, which resulted in the tragic loss of several patients including innocent children.

Qatar said the actions were deemed a war crime and a blatant violation of international laws, most notably, the Fourth Geneva Convention. The incursion followed a disturbing pattern of the occupation’s deliberate targeting of hospitals, schools, and civilian establishments within the Gaza Strip.

Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in an official statement, called for an immediate and comprehensive international investigation.

The investigation should involve independent UN investigators to meticulously examine the circumstances surrounding the Israeli occupation army’s assault on healthcare facilities. 

The Ministry also urged the international community to take swift and decisive measures to hold Israel accountable, acting as a deterrent against further crimes targeting civilians.

This was an urgent need, especially to provide necessary protection for the multitude of displaced individuals seeking refuge inside Shifa Medical Complex, alongside the wounded, sick and medical personnel.

The Ministry warned that the international community’s silence on Israel’s blatant crimes against humanity could embolden them to perpetuate more such atrocities.

Such a scenario, it cautioned, not only poses a direct threat to regional stability but also erodes trust in the international community and its institutions.

The Ministry underscored Qatar’s unwavering stance on the justness of the Palestinian cause, the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, and the imperative establishment of their independent state on the borders of 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
