FG CONDEMNS THE ONSLAUGHT ON DEFENSELESS CIVILIANS IN GAZA IN THE COURSE OF THE ISRAEL-PALESTINE CONFLICT                                                                                                                                  30-05-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                The Federal Government has condemn the onslaught on defenseless civilians currently being witnessed in Gaza in the course of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

A statement by the minister of Foreign Affairs Ambassador Yusuf Mamman Tuggar says the latest deadly attacks on the Rafah Displacement Camps in Southern Gaza on Sunday the 26th, which killed about 45 people, mostly women and children, represents an unfortunate addition to the list of strikes on soft civilian targets with devastating effects which have now characterized the crisis.

Ambasador Tuggar says the Rafah attacks, just like the bombing of the Al Shifa Hospital in early April, the serial bombing of schools, particularly in Khan Younis, the March 2024 bombing of the Firas Market and the Nuseirat Refugee Camp Market and the drone attacks on the World Central Kitchen aid staff in April, indicates a most regrettable affront on humanity, which must be denounced in its entirety.

He says Nigeria, therefore, is concerned about the safety and welfare of the civilian population of Gaza as it is about the protection of the dignity and sacredness of human life in the enclave.

The minister of foreign affairs of Nigeria is greatly dismayed at the flagrant disregard of ceasefire agreements, the violation of humanitarian corridors, and the deliberate sabotaging of aid and relief efforts.

Nigeria, therefore, strongly maintains the stance that the fundamental human rights, including and especially that to life, of the vulnerable civilian population of Gaza must be preserved at all cost.

The minister calls on all stakeholders—including the warring parties (Israel and Palestine), the United Nations, especially its Security Council, the European Union, human rights groups, civil society organisations, world leaders and the international community to intensify efforts towards a speedy resolution of the conflict, and the immediate cessation of the attendant carnage on the defenseless people, not just of Gaza, but on both sides of the divide.

The statement explains the Nigeria consider an intervention on behalf of the people of Gaza as a far-reaching contribution to preservation humanity and its values, and also reaffirm its position regarding the two-state solution as vital to the amelioration of the prevailing situation.
