Israel’s right to self-defense should be exercised in line with internationl law: Mitsotakis

Israel’s right to self-defense should be exercised under international law, the Greek premier said Saturday.

“Greece's position was extremely clear from the beginning. Israel has the right to self-defense, but always in accordance with international law, and human rights law,” Kyriakos Mitsotakis said at the Cairo Peace Summit in Egypt.

“At the same time, I want to be clear: Collective punishment is prohibited by the laws governing wars, and these laws are designed to say that there are limits to the harm and damage we can inflict on other human beings in cases of war,” he said.

Arguing that Hamas causes suffering for Israelis and Palestinians and should not be identified with the Palestinian people, Mitsotakisc urged the immediate release of hostages and permission to access humanitarian aid to Gaza.

“No military intervention can replace a viable political solution," he said while reiterating that Greece remains committed to a two-state solution.
