IQNA – Egypt’s Al-Azhar Islamic Center censured the Israeli regime’s latest massacre of Palestinians in a refugee camp in Gaza, calling it disgrace for humanity.

Israel carried out massive strikes on the Nuseirat refugee camp in Gaza on Saturday, June 8, 2024, killing more than 210 Palestinians.


Al-Azhar issued a statement on Sunday after the Zionist regime’s army launched an attack on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza on Saturday, killing at least 210 people and injuring more than 400.

This mass killing of Palestinians is yet another crime in the long list of the Zionist regime’s atrocities against the people of Palestine, Al-Azhar said.

The statement called it a horrific crime committed by Israeli terrorists who are spreading corruption and oppression on the earth.

This is yet another evidence that the Zionist regime is committing genocide against Palestinians, it underlined.

Al-Azhar called on the international community and the world’s people of conscience not to remain silent on these crimes.

It stressed the need for punishing the Tel Aviv regime for violating international laws and charters and forcing it to stop the bloodshed in the Gaza Strip.

Al-Azhar also slammed support for the Zionist regime in its war on Gaza which has created critical conditions in the Palestinian enclave.

The latest Israeli atrocity has drawn condemnations worldwide.

The EU foreign policy chief on Saturday “strongly” condemned the Israeli attack on the Nuseirat refugee camp.

“Reports from Gaza of another massacre of civilians are appalling. We condemn this in the strongest terms. The bloodbath must end immediately,” Josep Borrell said on X.

In a post on X, the UN Relief Chief Martin Griffiths said that “images of death and devastation following Israel’s military operation” in Nuseirat show the war in Gaza is “only growing more horrific.”

“Seeing bloodied patients being treated on hospital floors, we are reminded that health care in Gaza is hanging by a thread,” Griffiths added.

There was panic as Israel carried out massive strikes on the Nuseirat refugee camp in Gaza on Saturday.

Bodies were scattered across every corner of the refugee camp following the attack, which killed 210 people.

“We saw missiles flying over our heads. Nobody is protecting us,” a Palestinian woman in the camp said.

“We don’t know where the children are. We lost them, and now we are being displaced for a third time with no idea where to go.”

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) reported that its medical staff are treating “an overwhelming number of severely injured patients” at Al-Aqsa and Nasser hospitals in central Gaza.

“In one hour, we’ve received about 50 badly injured patients,” said Chris Hook, the MSF medical referent at Nasser Hospital.

“There are people with multiple major open fractures. We’ve got several unconscious children. The intensive care unit is full, and more patients are arriving,” Hook said.

Israel has continued its brutal offensive on Gaza since Oct. 7 despite a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire.

More than 36,800 Palestinians have since been killed in Gaza, most of them women and children, and over 83,500 others injured, according to local health authorities.
