DPRK Foreign Ministry spokesman on Israel's attack on Palestinian hospital

October 28, 2023

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on Thursday over Israel's recent attack on a hospital in Palestine that killed many people, a great tragedy:

Israel bombed a public health establishment which is to be protected with top priority in peacetime or wartime under international law. This is an unimaginably hideous war crime and unethical crime.

What should not be overlooked is that Israel's such criminal act was openly committed under the undisguised patronage of the US.

The US delivered huge amounts of munitions to Israel and dispatched two carrier strike groups to the waters off the Middle East, thus giving Israel a green light to massacre Palestinians without any worries.

Immediately after the bombing of the hospital by Israel, the US covered such crime, making absurd sophism that it was the work of other forces rather than Israel. This shows that the US is an accomplice that connived at and fostered Israel's genocide.

The US arrogantly vetoed a UNSC resolution on allowing humanitarian access to the Gaza Strip, for the mere reason that the "right to self-defence" of Israel was not mentioned. This reveals the US mind that it is enough if Israel faithfully carries out its Middle East policy, whether thousands of Palestinians die or not.

The US, wrecker of global peace and strangler of justice, can never evade the blame for having connived at and fostered Israel's hideous war crime that ruthlessly killed Palestinians.
