DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman on Israel's Strike at Palestinian Hospital
Pyongyang, October 26 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on Thursday over Israel's recent strike at a hospital in Palestine that killed many people, a great tragedy:

Israel bombed a public health establishment which is to be protected on a top priority in peacetime or wartime under international law. This is an unimaginable 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 U.S.

The U.S. 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 U.S. covered such crime, making absurd sophism that the incident seemed to be committed by other forces rather than Israel. This shows that the U.S. is an accomplice who connived at and fostered Israel's genocide.

The U.S. 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 U.S. intention that it is enough if Israel faithfully carries out its Middle East policy, whether thousands of Palestinians die or not.

The U.S., 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.
