Simon Coveney was speaking to reporters in South Korea

The Israeli air strike on a refugee camp in Gaza should raise “serious concern”, Minster for Enterprise Simon Coveney has said.

Health officials from Palestinians have said at least 50 Palestinians were killed after Israeli air strikes the camp earlier this week.

Speaking to reporters while on a trade mission to Korea, Coveney said the “idea that a building in a refugee camp... could be targeted, to my mind it's something that should raise serious concern amongst the international community. This should not be happening”.
