“I think we need to remember who started all this, and it wasn’t Israel, but someone who killed civilians, women and children,” the Italian leader said on the last day of the G7 summit held in southern Italy, referring to Hamas’ horrific Oct. 7 attack on Israel that left 1,200 people dead and sparked the bloody war.

Meloni called for all parties to work towards peace but accused Israel of falling into a “trap” in its counter-responses to Oct. 7.

“For the trap of Hamas was to isolate it. It seems it is working,” Meloni said, adding that Israel’s friends “need to give clear words to Israel, for its safety … and this is exactly what Italy is doing.”
