“Targeting hospitals and medical and ambulance personnel in the Gaza Strip in the midst of the ongoing Israeli aggression for the 36th day running is a war crime and genocide” Kaila told a news conference on Saturday in Ramallah.

“The international law international humanitarian law and international treaties have become dead letters after committing all these massacres in the Gaza Strip because of their failure to protect the hospital from being bombed and stop the Israeli machine of destruction and killing” she underlined.
