Saudi Arabia strongly condemned on Tuesday the Israeli forces’ “undeterred genocidal massacres against the Palestinian people as they continue to target the tents of innocent Palestinian refugees in Rafah.”

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry held Israeli authorities “completely responsible for the developments in Rafah and all Palestinian Territories.”

It warned that the “continued flagrant Israeli violations of all international and humanitarian laws, resolutions and norms, amid the international community’s silence, will deepen the unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe endured by the Palestinians and undermines the credibility of international legitimacy institutions.”

Saudi Arabia stressed the need “for the international community to assume its duty today without delay to put a stop to the massacres against the Palestinian people and hold those committing them to account.”
