The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) has condemned the recent Israeli attacks on Gaza.
The attacks resulted in the death of more than 10 people, including a five-year-old child, over the past 48 hours. Israel said the strikes followed a direct threat from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group.
The department says that the international community must ensure that international law is not violated without discrimination, and urgently stop the repeated attacks of the Israeli occupation forces against civilians.
Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Naledi Pandor recently stated that South Africa is concerned about the ongoing human rights violations in the occupied territories.
Dirco spokesperson Clayson Monyela says attacks that kill innocent civilians have no justification.
Israeli planes struck in Gaza and Palestinian militants rockets fired at Israel cities on Saturday as fighting ran into a second day, ending more than a year of relative calm along the border.
