Dr. Ahmad Yousef, advisor of the Palestinian Foreign Ministry in Gaza, stated that the Israeli occupation deliberately tries to humiliate international figures and legislators who attempt to visit the Gaza Strip.He added that what Israel’s behavior towards Belgian Development Minister, Charles Michel, preventing him from entering Gaza, is another Israeli violation to the international law. 

Yousef went on to say that the occupation believes that allowing international figures into the Gaza Strip would expose its violations in Gaza especially since it is trying to claim that the Hamas movement is fabricating the suffering of the residents, living under siege and ongoing attacks. 

“The Zionist enemy does not want any foreign official or group in Gaza,” Yousef said. “Visitations by international figures expose Israel’s violations against the civilians”. 

The official added that every country knows that Israel does not respect International law, and that it is an “aggressive state.”
