France’s foreign ministry has demanded Israel explain an air strike that killed a French foreign ministry staff member along with numerous other civilians.
In a post on X it said the employee died as a result of his injuries during the strike in Rafah.
He had been at the home of one of his colleagues at the French Consulate General, alongside two other colleagues and numerous members of their families.
On Wednesday the house was hit by an Israeli bomb, according to the ministry, which fatally injured the agent and killed many of the others.
“France condemns this strike on a residential building that killed numerous other civilians,” the foreign ministry said.
“We urge the Israeli authorities to shed light on the circumstances of this bombing as quickly as possible.”
