EU foreign policy head Josep Borrell has demanded “Israel” do something about “extremists” attacking humanitarian aid convoys on their way to Gaza.

Following the “Israeli” aggression on the city of Rafah, which is on the border of the Palestinian enclave with Egypt, supplies of food and other goods for Gaza have been rerouted through the Zionist entity. On Monday, one such convoy was ransacked near Al-Khalil [Hebron].

“I’m outraged by the repeated and still unchecked attacks perpetrated by Israeli extremists on aid convoys on their way to Gaza, including from Jordan. Hundreds of thousands of civilians are starving,” Borrell said on X [formerly Twitter] on Tuesday evening. He urged the Israeli authorities to “stop these operations and hold those responsible accountable.”

His condemnation comes after the so-called US “National” Security Adviser Jake Sullivan denounced the attack during Monday’s White House press briefing.

“It is a total outrage that there are people who are attacking and looting these convoys coming from Jordan going to Gaza to deliver humanitarian assistance,” Sullivan said. “It’s something we make no bones about – we find it completely and utterly unacceptable.”

In Monday’s incident, a convoy was stopped at the Tarqumiya checkpoint near Al-Khalil and a group of “Israelis” destroyed some of the food from the trucks.

According to witnesses, most of them were settlers. The common theme among all of them is that they are from the right-wing Zionist groups.

Photos and videos show the attackers climbing onto the trucks, throwing food packages onto the roadside and dumping out flour from the sacks.

According to reports, the “Israeli” army and police leak the location of aid convoys to the group.

The “Israeli” police claimed that it was investigating the convoy attack and had detained “multiple suspects.”
