Greece has condemned recent attacks against civilians in Gaza and has called for a thorough investigation into the incidents.

According to Ekathimerini, the Greek Foreign Ministry issued a statement on social media platform X.

“Greece condemns the recent attacks against civilians, including children, in Rafah,” the ministry said in the statement.

“We call for a thorough investigation which will shed light into the exact circumstances of this attack.”

Greece also reiterated its call for “an immediate ceasefire, respect of humanitarian and international law by all parties, urgent entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza and release of all hostages held by Hamas.”

This statement comes after Israeli airstrikes ignited a massive blaze at a tent camp in Rafah, Gaza late on Sunday, May 26. At least 45 people were killed and more than half of those burned to death were women, children and elderly people.
