UN says Israeli attacks on refugee camp could amount to “war crimes”

The United Nations Human Rights Office has expressed concern that Israel’s airstrikes on the Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza “may constitute war crimes.”

“Given the high number of civilian casualties and the scale of destruction following the Israeli airstrikes on the Jabalya refugee camp, we have serious concerns that these are disproportionate attacks that could constitute war crimes,” the office said in a social media post this Wednesday (1st).

The UN statement comes after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that an explosion in the Falluja neighborhood, on the site of the refugee camp, was caused by an airstrike.

Both airstrikes targeted Hamas, according to the IDF.

The Israeli Forces said in a statement today that its fighter jets “attacked a Hamas command and control complex in Jabalya,” adding that “Hamas terrorists were eliminated in the attack.”
