For the first time, North Korean official media commented on the armed hostilities between Israel and the Islamist organization Hamas on Tuesday, accusing Israel of instigating the bloodshed in Gaza.

A brief story on the conflict and casualties was published by Rodong Sinmun, a Workers’ Party mouthpiece, citing foreign media.
“The international community claims that this clash was the result of Israel’s constant criminal acts against the Palestinian people, and that the fundamental way out is to build an independent Palestinian state,” said the publication.
After a horrific weekend, the bloodshed, which has claimed more than 1,500 lives, prompted worldwide statements of support for Israel and demands for a halt to the conflict and protection of civilians.
In anticipation of a ground invasion by Israel, which has mobilized an unprecedented 300,000 reservists and put a siege on Gaza, Hamas has promised to murder an Israeli detainee every time Israel destroys a Palestinian home without notice.
The official North Korean media frequently criticizes Western perspectives on global issues, particularly those of the United States.
State media blasted “hostile forces inside and outside Syria” on Monday for a recent drone assault that left several people dead in the nation, describing it as a terrorist attempt to topple President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
