Egypt has condemned the most recent Israeli raid in Jenin in the occupied West Bank that killed three and wounded 31 others, warning of consequences of escalation against Palestinians, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The foreign ministry affirmed in the statement Egypt's rejection of this aggression "which contradicts all international laws and charters," warning of the dangers of continued Israeli escalation against the Palestinian people.

"These attacks only exacerbate situations that may spiral out of control, and undermine efforts to reduce tensions in the occupied territories," added the statement.

Following dawn prayers on Monday, the Israeli army raided Jenin using ground forces and airstrikes.    

Egypt has repeatedly condemned Israeli raids in the occupied West Bank as well as violations of Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem since the start of the year.
