Qatar condemns Israeli massacre on Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza

Qatar, which has been working in the background to defuse tensions between Israel and Hamas, strongly condemned the occupation’s bombing of the Jabalia camp in Gaza, which resulted in the martyrdom and injury of hundreds of innocent people.

The health ministry in Gaza said more than 50 people were killed and scores of others wounded in the Israeli bombardment.

“More than 50 martyrs and around 150 wounded and dozens under the rubble, in a heinous Israeli massacre that targeted a large area of homes in Jabalia camp in the northern Gaza Strip,” a statement said.

An Israeli military official confirmed the attack on the Jabalia refugee camp.

“There was a very senior Hamas commander in that area. We’re looking into it and we’ll be coming out with more data as we learn what happened there,” said Israeli army spokesperson Richard Hecht.

Qatar termed the attack a ‘new massacre against defenceless Palestinians, especially children and women’ and called on the international community to act quickly to stop the killing and destruction.

Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a statement, warned that the expansion of Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip to include civilian targets — including hospitals, schools, population centres and shelters for displaced persons —constituted a dangerous escalation of confrontations.

The Ministry said the attacks would undermine mediation and de-escalation efforts and portend more congestion, violence, and instability.

It also called on the international community to assume its moral and legal responsibilities to provide protection for the Palestinian people, and to force Israel to comply with international law and international humanitarian law.

The Ministry reiterated 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.
