The Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of National Unity condemned the Israeli occupation forces’ bombing of the headquarters of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza, saying this targeting comes within the clear occupation forces' policy to destroy all civilian and service facilities in the Gaza Strip.
The Ministry said in a statement Tuesday that this targeting of a leading institution through its development projects serving the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip for many years indicated the intention of the Israeli aggression to destroy all institutions whose work and tasks alleviated the suffering of the Palestinians.
It also renewed its call to the international community to protect civilians and civilian sites in the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian territories in compliance with the provisions of international law and all international treaties related to the protection of civilians.
The Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip has continued since October 7, leaving widespread destruction and a death toll that reached more than 11,000 Palestinians, at least two-thirds of whom are children and women.
In an audio statement published on Monday, Al-Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obaida considered that "the Zionist war leaders’ dreams of eliminating the resistance are an attempt to escape the resounding defeat", revealing Israel’s request to release 100 women and children from its detainees in Gaza, and noting that the Al-Qassam Brigades informed the Qatari mediators that they could release 50 women and children in Gaza and the number could reach 70 during a 5-day truce in exchange for the release of 200 Palestinian children and 75 women who were taken captives by the occupation forces.
