This is yet another Israeli violation of international law, which stresses the importance of protecting civilians and prohibits targeting of civilian facilities, the statement said.

Shelling the HQ of an Arab country that plays a key role in supporting the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip is against humanitarian principles and values, the Foreign Ministry said, stressing this cannot be justified under any pretext.

Egypt fully supports Qatar in the face of the Israeli heinous attack, the statement said, reiterating calls for the international parties to adopt serious and clear stances, and to live up to their responsibilities to put an end to the Israeli atrocities in Gaza. (MENA)
