British Royal Navy shoots down missile for first time since Gulf War in 1991 amid Houthi attacks on shipping

CAIRO: Al-Azhar Al-Sharif — Sunni Islam’s oldest and foremost seat of learning — has strongly condemned “the terrorist crimes being committed against civilians in the Gaza Strip.”

In a statement, Al-Azhar censured the attacks, “the hideousness of which was revealed through the widespread reports about mass graves of hundreds of bodies of children, women, the elderly, and medical personnel in the vicinity of the Nasser and Al-Shifa Medical Complexes.

“Also, dozens of bodies were found “scattered” in shelter and displacement centers and tents, and residential neighborhoods throughout the Strip.”

Al-Azhar said that it affirmed to the world that “these mass graves are the definitive proof that these hideous atrocities and horrors have become normal daily behavior for Israel.”

It said that the people of the world must unite to protest in a way that deterred the regimes supporting these crimes. 

Al-Azhar demanded an urgent international trial against “the ‎terrorist occupation government, which no longer ‎knows the meaning of humanity or the right to life and is ‎committing genocides every day.”

It reiterated the need for the international community to assume its responsibilities, stop the “frenzied aggression against the people of Gaza and the consequent suffering and unprecedented humanitarian disasters, and ensure the protection of civilians and the delivery of sufficient and sustainable humanitarian aid to all parts of the Gaza Strip.”

Al-Azhar expressed its “sincere condolences and sympathy to ‎the Palestinian people and the families of the martyrs, calling ‎on the Lord Almighty to shower them with His vast mercy and ‎forgiveness, to reassure the hearts of their families and loved ‎ones, and to speed up the recovery of the sick.”

Citing media reports, Al-Azhar said that the bodies of hundreds of Palestinians, including patients, had been uncovered in mass graves at the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis since Saturday.
