Gaza genocide becoming reminiscent of Rwanda genocide, Algeria warns

Algeria says the lessons learned from Rwanda’s painful past must be upheld when it comes to confronting Israel’s genocidal war in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Foreign Minister Ahmed Attaf made the remark during a ceremony in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, on Sunday. His presence was intended to renew Algeria’s permanent solidarity with the Republic of Rwanda.

The Rwandan genocide took place between April and July of 1994. It was triggered by the killing of Rwanda’s Hutu President Juvenal Habyarimana, a close ally of Paris, whose plane was shot down over Kigali.

France has long been accused of not doing enough to prevent the mass slaughter, which has led to strained ties between the two countries to date.

The Algerian foreign minister said in earlier comments that Israel had turned Gaza “from a mass prison into a mass grave.“

Israel launched the brutal campaign in Gaza on October 7, following Operation Al-Aqsa Storm by the resistance groups into the occupied territories. The regime has killed more than 33,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children.

Algeria has time and again said Israel must be held accountable for its crimes.

Meanwhile, the Western camp is under fire for giving arms to Israel.

The Canadian government is sued at a federal court for “contributing to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza”.


Recently, judges at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) heard a case filed by Nicaragua accusing Germany of supporting “genocide” against the people of Palestine in Gaza by supporting Israel.

In January, the ICJ imposed provisional measures ordering Israel to do all it can to prevent death, destruction and acts of genocide in Gaza. The orders came in a case filed by South Africa accusing Israel of breaching the Genocide Convention.

On Sunday, the United Nations Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA)’s Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said the Israeli savagery had set a new record in terms of killing minors, paramedics, and journalists.

The Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are facing increasingly dire conditions. The US-Israeli onslaught has entered the seventh month now.
