Israel sowing hate that will impact generations – Crosetto

Italian Defence Minister Guido Crosetto said Monday that Israel is sowing hatred that will affect its future generations after an Israeli strike on tents hosting displaced people in Rafah, in the Gaza Strip, killed dozens of people.

“I have the impression that Israel is sowing hatred that will impact (its) children and grandchildren,” Crosetto told the SkyTg24 Live in Milano event.

“Hamas is one thing, the Palestinian people is another.

“They should have discerned between the two “We are convinced that Israel had to solve the problem with Hamas, but, from day one, we have said that it had to be dealt with in a different way.

“With respect to Rafah, all States agreed that Israel had to stop.

“We were not listened to and now we look at the situation with despair.

“We are faced with an increasingly difficult situation in which the Palestinian people are being squeezed, without taking into account the dramatic difficulties and the rights of innocent men, women and children who have nothing to do with Hamas.

“This is no longer justifiable”.
