Israeli strikes on refugees in Gaza are to be recognized as a war crime

Israeli strikes on the Jebaliya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip are about to be declared a war crime due to the large number of civilian casualties and serious destruction. This was reported by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the social network X (formerly Twitter).

“We have serious concerns that these are disproportionate attacks that may amount to war crimes,” the department explained.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) admitted that it struck the Jebaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip. The IDF called the consequences of the operation on civilians a “tragedy of war.”

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, during a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke about the importance of protecting the civilian population of the Gaza Strip. At the same time, he expressed “Germany’s unwavering solidarity with Israel.”
