Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has finally broken his silence on Israeli atrocities against the Gaza Strip by censuring “international silence” over the Zionist regime's bloody offensive in the besieged enclave.

After 25 days of indiscriminate killing of civilians in Gaza at the hands of Zionist troops, the US-backed monarch condemned international silence over the Israeli onslaught, saying it qualified as a war crime and “state-sponsored terrorism.”

“We see the blood of our brothers in Palestine shed in collective massacres that have excluded no one, and war crimes against humanity without scruples, humanity or morality,” Abdullah said.

“This [international] community, which has observed silently what is happening in the whole region, has been indifferent to what is happening, as if what is happening is not its concern. [It is] silence that has no justification,” he said.

The Saudi despot further warned that if left to continue, the fighting in Gaza will “result in a generation that rejects peace and believes only in violence,” he said.

Zionist forces have been pounding the Gaza Strip since July 8. The regime also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian territory on July 17.

More than 1,600 Palestinians have so far been killed and over 9,000 others injured since the Israeli military first launched its latest offensive on Gaza .

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, has been launching retaliatory rockets and ambush ground attacks against Israeli forces, killing over 130 Zionist troops.
