China International Development Cooperation Agency on Saturday expressed high concerns over the Gaza situation and said Beijing is preparing to send its third aid shipment to the region.

In response to Western media hype of China “standing by” a humanitarian disaster in Gaza, the aid agency said Beijing has already delivered two shipments of emergency aid to the region.

“China strongly urges the international community to make active efforts to ensure the aid is delivered safely and smoothly to the people of Gaza,” the state-run daily Global Times citing the aid agency said.

Addressing the International Court of Justice on Thursday, the Chinese representative said the Palestinians’ use of armed struggle to gain independence from foreign and colonial rule is “legitimate” and “well-founded” in international law.

“In pursuit of the right to self-determination, Palestinian people’s use of force to resist foreign oppression and complete the establishment of an independent state is (an) inalienable right well founded in international law,” Ma Xinmin told the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

Citing resolutions by the UN General Assembly, Beijing’s envoy to the top world court said that people struggling for self-determination could use “all available means, including armed struggle.”

The International Court of Justice in The Hague is currently hearing arguments over the Israeli occupation of Palestinian Territories.

For the first time since its establishment in 1948, Israel is also currently being tried before the ICJ on charges of committing the crime of “genocide” against Palestinians in Gaza.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 29,606 Palestinians have been killed, and 69,737 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

Palestinian and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba.

Israel says that 1,200 soldiers and civilians were killed during the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation on October 7.
