Turkey condemns attack on Turkish-Palestinian hospital in Gaza

Turkey on Monday condemned “in the strongest terms” what it said was an Israeli attack on Gaza’s Turkish-Palestinian Friendship hospital, the foreign ministry said, adding such attacks and the blockade on Gaza were clear violations of international law.

“It is inexplicable for such an attack to take place given all the necessary information, including the coordinates of the institution in question, which is the only cancer hospital in Gaza, was shared with Israeli authorities in advance,” the ministry said in a statement.

Medical officials said air strikes in the vicinity of the major Gaza City hospitals including al-Shifa, al-Quds and the Turkish Friendship hospital, have caused damage.
