Pakistan has called for an investigation into the assaults carried out by Israeli forces on hospitals, mosques, and residential areas in Gaza. Mumtaz Zahrah Baloch, the Foreign Office spokesperson, expressed deep concern over the situation in Palestine during the weekly briefing.

She emphasized the need to halt the atrocities being committed against Palestinians, condemning Israel's ongoing attacks on unarmed individuals in Gaza. Pakistan stands firmly in solidarity with the Palestinian people, Baloch affirmed.

The spokesperson highlighted Pakistan's aid delivery to Gaza through the Rafah crossing, noting the challenges faced in providing assistance due to Israel's blockade. Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has strongly denounced the relentless Israeli brutality against Palestinians.

Baloch urged the international community to swiftly intervene and address the grave situation in Palestine. Additionally, she pointed out the severe human rights violations occurring in Indian-occupied Kashmir and called for global attention to compel India to cease its oppression of Kashmiri civilians.

Regarding Afghanistan, the spokesperson acknowledged the prolonged political turmoil and stressed the international community's responsibility to assist in rebuilding the country. Pakistan sympathizes with the Afghan people amid the enduring uncertainty in their nation.

Baloch refrained from responding to anti-Pakistan statements made by Afghan officials, stating Islamabad's focus on the smooth repatriation of illegally residing Afghans. She noted a substantial voluntary return of Afghan nationals and highlighted Pakistan's new visa requirement for Afghan citizens visiting the country.

Expressing concern about the use of Afghan territory for terrorist activities in Pakistan, Baloch expressed hope for action against the TTP, a banned outfit engaged in terrorism within Pakistan, urging Afghan authorities to take necessary measures against them.
