Q: On July 24 Beijing time, a school in northern Gaza strip run by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was attacked, resulting in numbers of deaths and injuries. What is China's comment on this?
A: Yesterday, a school in northern Gaza strip run by the UNRWA was attacked, which left large numbers of innocent people including women, children and UN staff injured and dead. China strongly condemns this attack.
China is deeply concerned about the escalation of tensions between Palestine and Israel, urging relevant parties to earnestly respond to the calls of the international community and the UN Security Council and coordinate with the mediation efforts made by the international community. Parties concerned should realize an immediate ceasefire with no conditions attached, refrain from any action that may escalate the tension and take real steps to protect civilians.
