In a swift response to the shocking and brutal attacks carried out by Palestinian militants belonging to the Hamas group, Polish President Andrzej Duda expressed his deep dismay and condemned the violence in a social media statement.
“I’m shocked by today’s brutal attacks on Israel by Hamas. Rockets attacks and detention of civilians as hostages arouse our deepest opposition. Poland strongly condemns all acts of violence,” Duda wrote on the X platform, echoing the sentiments of many global leaders who have condemned the attacks.
The unprecedented assault occurred at around 6:30 a.m. local time when Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip launched thousands of rockets towards Israel. Simultaneously, dozens of Hamas fighters infiltrated multiple locations in the south of the country, using air, land, and sea routes. The coordinated attacks have resulted in a devastating toll, with at least 40 Israelis killed and hundreds more wounded, marking it as one of the deadliest attacks on Israel in recent years.
Expressing his solidarity with the victims, President Duda extended his deepest sympathy and condolences to all those affected by the assaults. His statement underscores the global outcry against the violence and reaffirms Poland’s stance against any form of aggression targeting civilians.
The international community continues to closely monitor the situation, with leaders from various nations condemning the attacks and calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities. As Israel grapples with the aftermath of this tragedy, the world watches in hope for a swift resolution and lasting peace in the region.
