Saudi Arabia on Wednesday roundly condemned a deadly Israeli bombing of Gaza’s largest refugee camp that killed dozens of people.
Israel said it had targeted a Hamas tunnel complex under the densely populated Jabalia camp on Tuesday, killing local battalion commander Ibrahim Biari, who it believes was involved in the militant group’s October 7 attacks.
AFP witnessed at least 47 bodies being recovered from the scene.
Saudi Arabia denounced the strike “in the strongest terms possible”, decrying the “inhumane targeting” of the refugee camp “by the Israeli occupation forces”.
The attack, Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry said, had “caused the death and injury of a large number of innocent civilians”.
