Spanish Prime Minister: Condemning attacks on Gaza is about humanity, not ideology

RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez defended his critical posture of the Israeli attacks on Gaza amid a growing diplomatic row between Spain and Israel.

As the Muslims News reported Pedro Sanchez said to condemn the vile terrorist attacks by Hamas, and, at the same time, condemn the indiscriminate slaughter of Palestinian citizens in Gaza is not a question of political parties or ideology.

He added it is a question of humanity.

This is while Sanchez speaking during a rally in his first public appearance in Spain since his dramatic tour of Israel, Palestine and Egypt late last week.

While there, Sanchez outraged Israel’s leadership by accusing the nation of failing to comply with international humanitarian law in its siege and bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Near the end of Sanchez’s visit, who traveled alongside Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, the Israeli government summoned the Spanish and Belgian ambassadors.

Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen also accused the two European leaders of supporting terrorism.

In return, Spain’s Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares summoned the Israeli ambassador to Spain and called Cohen’s remarks “unacceptable.”

On Saturday, Cohen said Israel “will not forget who stands with us in these times and who supports a murderous terrorist organization that holds over 200 hostages.”

Later, Albares added that Spain would continue to “raise its voice” to protect innocent Palestinian civilians, while also condemning Hamas.
