Egypt slams Israeli operation in Nuseirat, without mentioning rescue of hostages

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry condemns “Israeli attacks on the Nuseirat [refugee] camp” in central Gaza, referring to the operation to rescue four hostages earlier today.

Citing death tolls given by Hamas officials that could not be independently verified, the statement slams the operation “in which more than 150 Palestinian civilians” were killed, saying the mission violated international law.

The statement does not mention the rescue of four hostages who were abducted during the Hamas terror group’s October 7 massacre.

The statement calls on the UN Security Council “to intervene immediately to stop the Israeli war against the Gaza Strip.”
