De Croo blows Gennez’s whistle after statements about war in Gaza and lashing out at Germany: “We should not criticize other European countries”

Prime Minister Alexander De Croo (Open Vld) does not agree with the statements made by Minister of Development Cooperation Caroline Gennez (Vooruit) about the war between Israel and Palestine. In an interview with the weekly magazine ‘Knack’ earlier this week, Gennez accused Israel of ethnic cleansing in Gaza. The minister also expressed fierce criticism of Germany, which, according to her, is “allowing itself to be used by the Israeli government.”
