  • North Korea: World should not tolerate Zionist entity’s reckless terrorism

North Korea has denounced the latest Zionist entity’s military aggression on the besieged Gaza strip, stating that Tel Aviv is massacring children and that the international community should not tolerate Israel's reckless sponsorship of terrorism.

“It is no exaggeration to say that the whole Gaza Strip has turned into a huge human slaughterhouse and a place of massacring children,” the North Korean Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“Israel's horrific crime of killing the … children is a severe challenge to the future of humankind and a crime against the humanity," it added.

The international community should not tolerate “Israel's reckless state-sponsored terrorism and act of obliterating other nations.” 

At least 260 Palestinians, including 66 children, were martyred in the Israeli regime bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 11 days of the conflict that began on May 10.

The airstrikes also brought widespread devastation to the already impoverished territory.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that Palestinians are facing “staggering health needs” in the occupied territories after the last month's conflict in the Gaza Strip.
