WASHINGTON: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has denounced the killing of 70 Palestinian people in a brutal Israeli attack on a residential area in Gaza, Arab media reported on Sunday.
The rights group asked American public to press President Joe Biden and his administration to put a stop to Israel’s bloody attack against the innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip.
In a statement, CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper said that the Biden administration’s active support for the current genocide and ethnic cleansing being conducted out by the far-right Netanyahu led government will stain their nation’s global reputation for several generations to come.
‘Ethnic Cleansing’ in must be Stopped in Gaza: Rights Group
Ibrahim Hooper maintained that the fact that Biden admitted that he did not even urge for a truce in the recent talks with Netanyahu speaks volumes regarding the administration’s immoral and heartless approach to the current genocide in the Gaza strip.
The health ministry in Gaza said that around 70 people have been killed in an Israeli airstrike that late Sunday hit several houses in a refugee camp in the Strip. The ministry added the attack destroyed the homes in the Al-Maghazi camp in the center of Gaza. Gaza’s Health ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qudra said, “The number of martyrs from the Al-Maghazi massacre has increased to seventy so far”.
Earlier, he said the attack completely destroyed a “residential block” and that the ” death toll is likely to increase” given the large number of families staying there.
In a separate incident, the health ministry said ten members of same family were killed in an Israeli attack on their home in the Jabalia camp in Gaza.
