Israel Kills French Diplomat in Airstrike on Residential Area in Gaza

The Israeli regime has killed a French diplomat who died from the injuries sustained by an Israeli attack in the Southern Gaza Strip district of Rafah.

The diplomat was reportedly seeking refuge in the home of an acquaintance from the French consulate with two other colleagues and members of their families, according to the French Ministry. “The house was hit by an Israeli airstrike on Wednesday evening, which seriously hurt our agent and killed about 10 others,” it said, adding that he had later succumbed to his injuries and died.

France has condemned the bombing of this residential meeting and has asked for “Israeli authorities to shed full light on the circumstances of this bombing as soon as possible.”

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, has called for a Ceasefire but remains heavily critical of the Palestinian Resistance. French authorities reportedly worked on a set of sanctions against Hamas and other Palestinian Resistance factions.

In a joint letter sent to the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, foreign ministers from Italy, France, and Germany asked the EU to establish an ad hoc sanctions regime for the Palestinian Resistance and its supporters.

“We express our full support for the proposal to create an ad hoc sanctions regime against Hamas and its supporters,” the letter read.

“The swift adoption of this sanctions regime will enable us to send a strong political message about the EU’s commitment against Hamas and our solidarity with Israel.”

The Israeli regime has now killed over 18,800 people and injured more than 50,000 in Occupied Palestine.
