The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah denounced Wednesday the war crimes and genocide in the besieged Gaza Strip, calling for a firm Arab stance to stop the Israeli aggression that had been ongoing since October 07.

"Targeting defenseless civilians, bombing hospitals, ambulances, mosques, and schools, and the stifling, inhumane siege of the Gaza Strip, constitute genocide, war crimes, and a stain written by history on the foreheads of the occupiers and their supporters,” Dbeibah said in a video statement released by the official media platform Hakomitna on Facebook.

Dbeibah said that the massacre at Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza showed the ugly face of the Israeli occupation and the hateful killing machine that "brags about its power and unlimited, arrogant support."

"The people and government of Libya will spare no effort in providing humanitarian and relief aid quickly, ensuring its passage to Gaza." He said, pointing out Libyans’ expression of solidarity with Palestinians in public squares through the ongoing protests in support of besieged Gaza.

Dbeibah directed his speech to the leaders of the Arab countries, saying: “The central issue of Palestine is uniting all our peoples who hope that we will have a firm stance that forces the aggressor, the occupier, and its supporters to stop the aggression.” 

The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that more than 600 people, most of them women and children, were killed, and 900 others were injured in an Israeli bombing that targeted the Arab Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in the Gaza Strip.

The Ministry of Health explained that the martyrs of the bombing were mostly women and children, whose body parts were spread on the trees and hospital corridors, noting that the high number of martyrs came due to the crowding of the hospital yards with displaced people and refugees heading to the hospital to take shelter from the brutal Israeli bombing of civilian homes.
