In its turn, Al-Raya newspaper said in its editorial that Gaza is the victim of a new Israeli criminal aggression once again. At dawn, Israeli terrorism assassinated defenseless Palestinians in their homes with their families under the pretext of carrying out security operations that kill innocents, children, and women.
The newspaper pointed out that the occupation chooses to escalate every time for political interests. The Israeli criminal coalition, which was about to crack, found a goal to shed the blood of the Palestinians to unify the political front behind it and breathe new life into a criminal government that perseveres every day in killing and displacing the Palestinians, constantly competing over which of them practices the highest degree of terrorism against the defenseless Palestinian people.
The State of Qatar condemned in the strongest terms the brutal Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of innocent and defenseless people while they were sleeping in their homes. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs considered this attack a new episode in the series of horrific occupation crimes against the defenseless Palestinian people, especially women, and children, the paper added.
Al-Raya stressed that the State of Qatar, which considers the Palestinian cause a fundamental pillar in its foreign policy, will always stand by the Palestinian people and continue to support them in various political, diplomatic, humanitarian, and media to achieve their legitimate rights, including the establishment of their independent state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
At the conclusion of its editorial, the newspaper called for international action to protect the Palestinian people, stop Israel from its blatant violations of international law, and force it to respect the resolutions of international legitimacy.
For its part, the English-language newspaper, The Peninsula, denounced the horrific crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinians, pointing out that despite international condemnation and calls to refrain from barbaric violence, Israel has gone ahead with its horrific crimes against the Palestinians by carrying out deadly pre-dawn strikes on Gaza killing 13 people including four children.
In its editorial entitled “Horrific crimes against defenseless,” the newspaper said that the State of Qatar condemned in the strongest terms the brutal Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, considering it a new episode in the series of horrific occupation crimes against the defenseless Palestinian people, especially women, and children. The Ministry warned of the fading chances of peace and the widening cycle of violence due to the provocative Israeli escalation.
The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists released a report in which they detailed how the Israeli military has systematically evaded accountability in the deaths of journalists over the years, the paper noted.
This report was released just ahead of the first anniversary of the death of Shireen Abu Akleh, a journalist with Al Jazeera, who was killed while covering an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank. To date, no one has been charged, disciplined, or otherwise held responsible At the UN review diplomats also decried Israels settlement expansion policies, forced evictions and demolitions of Palestinian homes, and demanded investigations of settler attacks on Palestinians, The Peninsula added.
In conclusion, The Peninsula said that the international community needs to come together and exert tremendous pressure on this aggressive regime to follow the path of peace and stop violating international law.
