Pakistan reacts strongly against Israeli Minister threat of Nuclear bomb attack on Gaza
In reaction to a troubling statement by an Israeli minister hinting at the possible use of nuclear force against Palestinians, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has issued a strong condemnation.
This statement has garnered international criticism. In a strongly worded announcement released on Monday, the spokesperson for the foreign office expressed unequivocal disapproval of the Israeli minister's remarks.
The ministry characterized these statements as deeply concerning, indicating a disturbing intention that raises concerns about ethnic cleansing and genocide. Pakistan has urged the global community to recognize the broader implications of such rhetoric, as it has the potential to disrupt regional peace, security, and stability.
The foreign office emphasizes that this incident should serve as a clear warning to the world, highlighting the imminent threat posed by Israeli aggression in the region.
Israel's Heritage Minister, Amihay Eliyahu, a member of a far-right party in the coalition government, has been suspended from cabinet meetings "until further notice" after his comment regarding a potential Israeli nuclear strike on Gaza. Eliyahu's remark, made during a radio interview, was swiftly condemned by the Arab world and deemed objectionable by a US official.
In response to the controversy, Netanyahu's office stressed that Israel and the IDF (military) are operating in accordance with international law to prevent harm to civilians. The prime minister also distanced the government from Eliyahu's statement, clarifying that the minister's comment did not represent the official stance.
The League of Arab States criticized Eliyahu's remarks, expressing concerns about Israel's alleged nuclear capabilities and its view of the Palestinian people.
