Spain’s prime minister has expressed doubts that Israel is abiding by international law in its war on Gaza, given the high number of civilian casualties there.

Iran PressEurope: “The footage we are seeing and the growing numbers of children dying, I have serious doubt [Israel] is complying with international humanitarian law,” Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said.

“What we are seeing in Gaza is not acceptable,” he said in an interview with Spanish state-owned broadcaster TVE.

Israel responded to Sanchez, by summoning the Spanish ambassador for a reprimand and recalling its envoy to Madrid for consultations.

Last week Sanchez denounced Israel’s “indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians, including thousands of boys and girls” in the Gaza Strip.

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, the Palestinian resistance forces launched a surprise operation called "Al-Aqsa Flood" against the positions of Tel Aviv, and the Zionist regime, to retaliate for its defeat and stop the resistance operations, bombed all the crossings, especially the mosques and medical centers of the Gaza Strip.

At least 25,105 people have been killed and 62,681 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, the Health Ministry in Gaza announced.
