“Every self-respecting government responds”: Wouter de Vreendt (Green) describes the bombing of the Belgian office in Gaza as “an attack on our country” | The Israeli-Palestinian conflict

The offices of the Belgian development agency Enabel in Gaza were bombed and destroyed. Wouter de Vreendt, leader of the Flemish faction of the Ecolo-Gruen party in the room, speaks of a “not-so-veiled Israeli attack on our country.” “Every self-respecting government responds,” X says.

According to De Vriendt, the attack was “retaliation for the Vivaldi government's clear choice of international law.” He points out that “Israel does not tolerate criticism.”


Enabel's offices are located in a six-story tower in Gaza City, in the northern Gaza Strip. According to the latest information, there were no employees present at the time of the bombings.

Two weeks ago, the Belgian government decided to evacuate employees and their immediate family members. “We are counting on these people, including many children, to be able to leave Gaza quickly and unharmed,” the State Department said.

Summon the Israeli ambassador

Foreign Minister Hajjah Habib summoned the Israeli Ambassador to Belgium, Idit Rosenzweig Abu. Minister for Development Cooperation Caroline Jenes (FOR) also attended this meeting. Together they strongly condemned the office bombings.

Rosenzweig-Apo then responded, saying: “Our government is currently investigating whether this was the work of the Israeli military.” Once we have this information, we will share it with the Belgian authorities.”
