India has called for the strict adherence to international humanitarian law in light of the recent explosion at a Gaza hospital. Arindam Bagchi, spokesperson for India’s External Affairs Ministry, expressed deep concern over civilian casualties and the worsening humanitarian conditions.
During his weekly media briefing, Bagchi emphasized the importance of upholding international humanitarian law and condemned the horrific attack on the hospital.
He stressed the need for the international community to unite in combating terrorism in all its forms.
When questioned about the Palestine issue, Bagchi reiterated India’s support for direct negotiations leading to a two-state solution.
The hospital explosion, which resulted in around 500 Palestinian casualties, sparked controversy, with Palestinian health authorities attributing it to an Israeli airstrike while the Israeli military blamed it on a failed rocket launch by a Palestinian militant group.
The conflict escalated due to multiple attacks by Hamas terrorists from Gaza against Israel, prompting a significant Israeli counteroffensive in Gaza.
