– First of all, it was a protest against what happened regarding volunteers. What I call, also as a lawyer, not an accident as it was initially interpreted by the Israeli side, but unfortunately a murder with the use of explosives – said the guest of “Fakty po Faktach”.

As Szejna said, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanded, among other things, explaining the entire case in depth with the participation of the District Prosecutor's Office in Przemyśl, compensation for the victims' families if they demand it, and implementation of the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council. Szejna recalled that on March 25 this year. The council “adopted a resolution calling on Israel to ceasefire, but also not to block humanitarian aid.”
