Tunisian Foreign Minister Rafik Abdesslem visited the Gaza Strip on Saturday and denounced Israeli attacks on the Palestinian enclave as unacceptable and against international law.

 

"Israel should understand that many things have changed and that lots of water has run in the Arab river," Abdesslem said as he surveyed the office of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh reduced to rubble in an overnight airstrike.

"(Israel) should realize it no longer has a free hand. It does not have total immunity and is not above international law," he added. "What Israel is doing is not legitimate and is not acceptable at all."

 

Israel launched a concerted air campaign against the densely populated territory on Wednesday with the stated aim of halting regular rocket fire out of Gaza that has disrupted life across southern Israel.

 

Palestinian terror groups have fired hundreds more rockets in the last three days, even targeting the far-away centers of Israeli commerce and government – Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

 

Abdesslem is the second high-profile visitor to Gaza since the start of the latest wave of violence, with Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil travelling to the territory on Friday.

 

In an unprecedented display of solidarity with Hamas militants embroiled in a conflict that risks spiraling into all-out war, Kandil spent three hours in the enclave and met with amas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

 

"This tragedy cannot pass in silence and the world should take responsibility in stopping this aggression," he said in a press conference.
