KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia strongly condemns the merciless attacks by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on 12th April in Rafah which blatantly targeted and injured several humanitarian aid convoy and volunteers including those operated by Ops Ihsan from Malaysia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement said, the attack against humanitarian workers, volunteers and unarmed individuals undertaking relief efforts is totally unacceptable.

“These shameless acts of violence on Israel’s part reek of cruelty and inhumanity beyond any comprehension or justification.

“It is no longer sufficient to chastise these atrocities from the sidelines. It is high time for the international community to band together and demand that Israel stop these indiscriminate acts and be held responsible for their crimes,” the ministry said in its statement.

The statement added, Israel had once made dubious claims that these were necessary measures of self-defence. However, its actions since October 2023 have clearly signalled the opposite. Israel is very much the aggressor.

The statement highlighted that at a time when aid is urgently needed to reach the Palestinians, Israel regime has continuously imposed obstacles and obstructions and threatened safety to starve the old, the sick, women and children and terrorise them.

“This is the second time that Ops Ihsan ‘s operations have been disrupted and lives of its volunteers needlessly jeopardised. The first attack took place on 14th March 2024 that claimed the lives of eight Palestinians and more than 20 others injured,” the statement said.-Malaysia World News
