Hamas slams deliberate targeting of Gaza hospitals by Israel

TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (MNA) – The Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas has condemned the deliberate targeting of Gaza’s hospitals by Israel and termed them as a "war crime," urging the international community to take immediate action to stop it.

Hamas, in a statement on Tuesday, called on the United Nations, and other international bodies to take immediate action against the Israeli aggression against medical centers in Gaza’s southern city of Khan Younis.

The Palestinian Resistance also warned that the Israeli attacks put the lives of patients, medical staff, and the refugees at hospitals, at risk.

Earlier in the day, Gaza’s health ministry said the Israeli tanks fired directly at the upper floors of the specialized surgery building at Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis.

The regime has also blockaded and targeted other hospitals in southern Gaza, claiming that Hamas forces operate in and around these places. Hamas has rejected the allegations.

Khan Younis, the largest city in the south of the Strip, has been the focus of the regime’s latest strikes.

Some 190 people have been killed over the past 24 hours, almost a third of them in Khan Yunis.

On the 109th day of the US-Israeli genocide in Gaza, the death toll has risen to more than 25,500, predominantly comprising women and children.

Despite its deadly and destructive campaign in Gaza, Israel has so far failed to achieve its main goals in the onslaught, namely destroying Hamas and securing the release of its captives through military means.
