AMMAN — The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has strongly condemned the Israeli occupation forces' intrusion into Al-Shifa Medical Hospital in Gaza, deeming it a clear violation of international humanitarian law, particularly the 1949 Geneva Convention on the Protection of Civilians in Time of War.اضافة اعلان

The Ministry unequivocally placed the responsibility for the safety of civilians and medical personnel in the hospital squarely on Israel.

Ambassador Dr. Sufian Al-Qudah, the Ministry's official spokesperson, emphasized that the ongoing arbitrary attacks and the intensifying war on Gaza, which includes the targeting of civilian structures in the sector and the systematic destruction of crucial civil facilities providing essential services to Gazans, coupled with the policy of collective punishment, represent a condemned persistence in grave violations of international humanitarian law and human rights, amounting to war crimes.

Qudah underscored that the precarious situation in Gaza imposes a legal responsibility on the Security Council, while the international community bears an ethical duty to exert pressure on Israel, the occupying power, compelling it to halt its ongoing aggression and warfare, along with its unjustifiable targeting of civilians, particularly women and children, under any pretext or excuse.
