China Slaps Israel with Bureaucratic Obstacles for Onslaught on Gaza

Israeli companies have complained of difficulties in importing tech components from China that were utilized for “military and sometimes civilian purposes,’ as reported by Israeli Media sources. 

“These obstacles are related to the war,” an Israeli government official said.

“Although the Chinese suppliers did not officially announce any sanctions against Israel, in reality, there appears to be some kind of bureaucratic obstacles,” according to a report, citing that Beijing has been “demanding the completion of numerous forms” which are likely to cause “shipment delays due to inaccurately filled-out paperwork.”

“We are concerned that strict enforcement is happening because we are in a state of war. Inquiries have been made to the Chinese, and their official response is that there is no change in policy. The problem is that until we overcome all the new requirements, we cannot be certain if the supply will be fulfilled. It is clear to us that there is a direct link to the war,” the Israeli official said.

Israeli media reports then stated that Chinese warships summoned to the Red Sea have even refused to assist Israeli cargo ships in the Bab al-Mandab Strait. 

Beijing has also called for a ceasefire in the besieged Gaza Strip, and stresses that it is “an absolute priority and prerequisite for everything else.”

Commenting on the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution passed last week, which calls for urgent action to expand humanitarian assistance to Gaza, China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning told reporters that “The resolution does not quite come up to international expectations and has certain gaps that need to be filled.” This was in reference to the UN Security Council resolution which passed last week, calling for an urgent action to expand humanitarian assistance to Gaza. 

“Yet in light of the urgent situation on the ground and the position of Palestine and other Arab countries, China voted in favor of the resolution,” Mao added.

China initially played safe in the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on  Oct.7, but as the Israeli Regime’s onslaught against the Gaza Strip worsened, Chinese diplomats condemned the Israeli Regime’s relentless bombardment on Gaza, and called it a form of collective punishment.
