Simultaneously, the Arab League condemned the conflict escalation, calling on the international community to support the efforts of Egypt and the United Nations to resolve the situation.
“Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit condemned the military escalation by israel and the air raids on the Gaza Strip, the victims of which are civilians in the Gaza Strip. He called on the international community to take swift and decisive action to encourage Israel, as an occupying force, to immediately cease military operations in Gaza, which are a clear violation of international law, and to support the efforts by Egypt and the United Nations in this direction,” the statement reads.
Aboul Gheit stressed the need for Israel to comply with the Geneva Convention on the protection of civilians and the inadmissibility of attacks on civilian facilities.
