  • Euro-Med urges EU interference to end Zionist entity’s aggression in Gaza

A rights group in a letter to the European Union has detailed the ongoing Israeli campaign of brutality against Palestinians, stressing the need to intervene and end deadly airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to reports, in the letter to EU foreign ministers, the European Commission and European Parliamentary Committees, the Geneva-based Euro-Med Monitor expressed deep concern over the ongoing Israeli regime raids which have martyred dozens of civilians.

The group called on the European Union and its member states to comprehensively address the Israeli regime violations, provocations and abuses across the occupied territories.

Euro-Med Monitor stressed that the Europeans have failed to take adequate action against the Israeli settlement expansion, eviction of Palestinians in al-Quds and elsewhere across the West Bank, provocation at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound and the continued siege of Gaza.

Ramy Abdu, the group's chairman, said the EU has condemned Israeli regime’s actions, but it has not imposed any practical penalties in recent decades.

“This has led to an escalation of the situation on the ground, threatening a comprehensive explosion and more severe consequences,” he said.

“The escalation is part of a repetitive cycle that is too familiar to observers and human rights organizations."

Emboldened by the West's silence, the illegal Zionist entity has stepped up its attacks on the civilian population and infrastructure, Abdu said.

He stressed that the Israeli regime escalation has encouraged the illegal Zionist settlers to intensify their racist attacks on the Palestinians, their farms and properties throughout the West Bank and al-Quds.

The rights group warned that such acts of deliberate targeting of civilian areas might amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
