What Israel is Doing in Gaza is a ‘heinous crime’ and a ‘brutal attack’, Saudi Crown Prince said.

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said on a telephone call with Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Wednesday that what Israel is doing in Gaza is unacceptable. 

The Crown Prince considers targeting civilians in Gaza a “heinous crime and brutal attack,” the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Saudi Arabia has strengthened its position in strongly criticizing Israel following the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital massacre on Tuesday. 

Israel killed nearly 500 Palestinians and wounded hundreds more when an Israeli missile hit a large crowd of displaced Palestinians taking shelter in one of Gaza’s largest medical centers. 

Since the start of the war, Israel has sealed off the Gaza Strip, preventing the entry of food, water, medicine, and fuel to the 2.3 million Palestinians living in the crowded Strip. 

According to SPA, the Saudi Crown Prince also stressed the importance of de-escalating, to avoid what he described as repercussions that would affect the stability of the region and the world.
