IP- Israeli tanks surrounded the Indonesian Hospital in Gaza where at least 12 people were killed following direct Israeli strikes since the morning.

Iran PressWest Asia: Gaza’s health ministry director dismissed Israel’s claim that it had found a Hamas tunnel at the al-Shifa Hospital, describing it as a “pure lie”.

More than 13,000 people killed in Gaza since the Israeli bombardment began on October 7. In Israel, the official death toll in Hamas’s attacks stands at about 1,200.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki says Israel is seeking to “bring to an end the Palestinian people’s presence on what remains of its historical land”.

He made his comment during a summit of diplomats from Arab and Muslim-majority nations in Beijing.

Displacement of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip will threaten peace, security, and stability in the region and the world, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, adding that Israel’s policy of blocking the entry of aid to Gaza is systematically aimed at pushing Palestinians to leave the Strip under the weight of bombardment and siege.

“Unfortunately, the grave Israeli violations of Israeli war crimes are not called by some by their real names,” Sameh Shoukry said during a meeting with the Chinese foreign minister in Beijing.

“Egypt is making every effort to bring aid into the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing, but Israel’s policy of obstructing the entry of aid is a systematic policy aimed at pushing the Palestinians to leave the Strip under the weight of bombing and siege.”

Iran’s top diplomat Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has also called on Russia to play a more active role in securing peace in the region.

“Resistance will undoubtedly determine the final result,” Amir-Abdollahian told his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in a phone call.
