European Union Foreign Affairs and Security Policy High Representative Josep Borrell condemned on Saturday Israel's shelling of Gaza that led to damage done to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) office there and multiple casualties, APA reports citing BBN.

"An independent investigation is needed and those responsible must be held accountable. Protection of civilians is an obligation under Geneva Conventions," Borrell wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

"All parties in conflict are bound to it. ICRC must be able to carry out all its Geneva Conventions duties in safety, including humanitarian protection, assistance to the victims, access to prisoners," he concluded.
