Spanish Defense Minister: The Gaza war is a real genocide

Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles described the war in Gaza as a real genocide, as relations between Israel and Spain deteriorated after Madrid’s decision to recognize the Palestinian state.

Robles’ comments came during an interview with the official TV channel TVE on Saturday, in which she also said “We cannot ignore what is happening in Gaza, which is a real genocide.” She pointed out that Madrid’s recognition of the Palestinian state is not a move against Israel, but rather aims to help end the violence in Gaza.

Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares posted on the X platform, “The precautionary measures taken by the International Court of Justice, which included a decision to suspend the Israeli attack in Rafah, are binding and we demand their implementation.”
