In a recent development, Belgium has summoned the Israeli ambassador following the bombing of a Belgian development agency building in Gaza City.
The Belgian Ministry for Development Cooperation, unaware of any civilian casualties, emphasized that the building should have been empty during the bombing.
Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib stressed on social media that such attacks on civilian infrastructure violate international humanitarian law, urging all parties to adhere to it.
The Belgian foreign ministry plans to address the issue of compensation for the damaged infrastructure in EU-financed projects at the next European consultation.
While the timing of the bombing remains unclear, Belgium, informed on Thursday evening, suspects it occurred on Wednesday.
