In continuation of the genocide against our people, last night, the Israeli occupation planes bombed the only Al-Maghazi bakery, which had been supplied with flour hours earlier by the UNRWA, to supply tens of thousands of camp residents and those displaced there. The missiles completely destroyed the bakery and left a large hole in its place, in addition to demolishing a number of homes surrounding the center of Al-Maghazi camp, killing 10 and injuring dozens.
This new crime, which is completely consistent with the behavior of this criminal occupier from the beginning of its aggression, provides new evidence of the occupation’s lies about the nature of its targeting of the Gaza Strip. We have seen dozens of other instances of these crimes deliberately targeting gatherings of citizens at bakeries, in markets, and even inside hospitals or churches, such as what happened in the massacre of the Al-Ahli Al-Arabi Hospital and the Greek Orthodox Church.
This is a crime through which the occupation seeks to raise the human cost of the victims of this genocide, and to exacerbate the catastrophic humanitarian reality that our people are experiencing under the applied siege and the prevention of all basic needs and necessities of life.
These crimes raise once again the question about the role of the international community and the United Nations organizations that were unable to stop the aggression and put an end to this genocide, and have also failed to provide the necessary humanitarian supplies to hundreds of thousands of displaced people in shelter centers.
