The Saudi Foreign Ministry has issued a stern warning to Israel regarding the possibility of its military forces launching a ground operation in Rafah, which is currently home to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who have been displaced due to Israeli bombing. The Ministry stated that such an operation would pose an “extremely dangerous” threat to the civilian population and could exacerbate the ongoing conflict in the Palestinian enclave.
The Ministry also strongly condemned the forced displacement of Palestinians and called for an immediate ceasefire. They expressed deep concern about what they described as deliberate violations of international and humanitarian laws, urging the United Nations Security Council to meet as soon as possible to prevent a catastrophic humanitarian disaster.
In addition to their warning to Israel, the Saudi Foreign Ministry released a statement on social media platform X, expressing their deep concern for the safety and well-being of millions of Palestinians who have been forced from their homes. They referred to Rafah as the last safe haven for these individuals and emphasized the urgent need for immediate action to protect them and prevent further displacement.
The Ministry also renewed their call for an immediate ceasefire and urged international organizations to take swift action in order to protect those affected by this ongoing conflict. Saudi Arabia’s stance on this issue remains clear: they are urging all parties involved in this situation to prioritize the safety and well-being of innocent civilians above all else.
