RAMALLAH, Monday, May 22, 2023 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates today condemned Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, the latest of which was the storming this morning of Balata refugee camp in Nablus, which led to the killing of three Palestinians and the injury of others, as well as causing heavy destruction to homes and property, and called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to break its silence and prosecute Israelis responsible for these crimes.
