African Union chief charges Israel of war crimes in Gaza

The African Union chief Moussa Faki Mahamat accused Israel of a “war crime” following a strike on a Gaza hospital compound which health officials there said killed hundreds on Tuesday.

“There are no words to fully express our condemnation of Israel’s bombing of a Gaza hospital today, killing hundreds of people,” Faki said on X, calling for the international community to act.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron said “nothing can justify targeting civilians” after a deadly strike on a Gaza hospital and called for humanitarian access to the coastal strip “without delay”.

Israel has been bombing targets in Gaza since Hamas militants from the territory attacked southern Israel on October 7, triggering a war which has left thousands of dead.
