Brussels: Pakistan and 20 other OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) countries have called for Israel to be declared a war criminal for its war crimes against Palestinians.
In a press conference at the Brussels Press Club, 20 ambassadors representing Pakistan and OIC countries voiced their demand to declare Israel a criminal due to its war crimes against Palestinians.
The ambassadors stated that the people of Gaza should be saved from Israeli aggression, and international protection should be provided to them. On the other hand, U.S. President Joe Biden mentioned that ensuring the protection of the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza is essential, and discussions on this matter are ongoing with the Israeli military.
The World Health Organization (WHO) expressed concern that the Al-Shifa Hospital has turned into a cemetery due to the accumulation of corpses, with 600 individuals currently present in the hospital. Dr. Mohammad Abu Salmiya, the director of Al-Shifa Hospital, revealed that Israeli authorities have not granted permission to relocate the piling corpses from the hospital for burial, causing deterioration of the bodies.
China has condemned the Israeli bombing on Al-Shifa Hospital and once again called for a ceasefire. A minute of silence was observed at the United Nations in memory of the slain UN workers due to Israeli brutality.
According to Palestinian statistical authorities, since the Zionist bombing in Gaza starting from October 7, 3,117 students from various schools have been martyred.
