Ankara, The Gulf Observer: Türkiye has condemned in strongest terms Israel’s attack on the Gaza Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital, the only cancer hospital in the besieged enclave.
“There can be no justification for such an attack carried out despite all necessary information, including the coordinates of the institution was previously shared with the Israeli authorities,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
“The siege in Gaza, aimed at depriving the Palestinian people of their most basic rights, and these inhumane attacks, clearly violate international law,” the ministry added.
It called on Israel to cease targeting the residents of Gaza indiscriminately.
Earlier in the day, the medical facility, dedicated to cancer patients in Gaza, suffered damage from Israeli airstrikes, particularly impacting its third and top floors.
Israeli airstrikes on Gaza since Oct. 7 have repeatedly targeted hospitals, residences, and house of worship such as mosques and churches.
Under the Geneva Convention, attacks on hospitals are strictly prohibited.
