PETALING JAYA: Malaysia strongly condemns the April 13 Israeli military attack on Rafah, Palestine where Ops Ihsan humanitarian aid workers were injured, says the Foreign Ministry.

In a statement on Saturday (April 13) Wisma Putra said that the attack against humanitarian workers, volunteers and unarmed individuals was totally unacceptable.

"These shameless acts of violence on Israel's part reek of cruelty and inhumanity beyond any comprehension or justification," it said.

On Friday, Ops Ihsan aid volunteers were injured following an attack in Rafah while they were offloading aid packages from a warehouse.

The attack happened near a lorry carrying 13,000 food boxes for northern Gaza, where starvation has worsened due to Israeli restrictions on delivering aid.

"When aid is urgently needed to reach Palestinians, the Israeli regime has continuously imposed obstacles and obstructions, which threatens to starve the old, the sick, women and children, and terrorise them," it said.

According to Ops Ihsan secretariat chairman Jismi Johari the latest strike could have been a drone attack, adding that this was the third incident affecting Ops Ihsan’s humanitarian efforts.

During Ramadan, he said an area where a distribution centre in Gaza was bombed, killing seven Palestinian volunteers from youth and sports clubs.

Another recent incident in northern Gaza led to the deaths of 25 Palestinians who ventured out to get water supplied by a member of Ops Ihsan, he said, adding that it was a sniper attack.
