Second Israeli massacre at Gaza’s refugee camp in less than 24 hours

Palestinian medical authorities say dozens of people have been killed and injured in a new “massacre” targeting the densely-populated Jabalia refugee camp in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that several airstrikes hit the residential area of Faluja in the camp on Wednesday.

Local sources said scores of people killed or wounded are arriving at the Indonesian hospital in Gaza City.

It was the second attack on the camp in less than 24 hours.

Jabalia is the largest of the Gaza Strip's UN refugee camps housing people forcibly expelled by Zionist militia and Israel in 1948. The area is reportedly home to nearly 120,000 people.

EU foreign policy chief ‘appalled’ by Jabalia attack

Meanwhile, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell wrote in a post published on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he was “appalled by the high number of casualties following the bombing by Israel of the Jabalia refugee camp.”

“Laws of war and humanity must always apply, including when it comes to humanitarian assistance,” Borrel noted.

Turkish FM slams 'one standard for Ukraine, another for Palestine'

Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan also questioned why the international community rallied around Ukraine after Russia’s military campaign, but has been largely silent on the fate of Gaza.

“There cannot be one standard for Ukraine and another for Palestine. If we want a just world, we must always act in a principled and consistent manner,” Fidan said.

He added, “We do not want the human tragedy in Gaza to turn into a war that affects the region.”

“These inhumane sieges and attacks against our Gazan brothers are a clear violation of international law,” the top Turkish diplomat noted.
