EU condemns Gaza raids, ‘needs independent investigation’

«The EU condemns the bombings that damaged the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Gaza and caused dozens of victims. An independent investigation is needed and those responsible must be held to account. The protection of civilians is an obligation under the Geneva Conventions.” The EU High Representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, writes this on X. «All parties to the conflict are bound by it. The International Committee of the Red Cross must be able to safely carry out all its tasks under the Geneva Conventions, including humanitarian protection, assistance to victims, access to prisoners,” he added.
