Describing the attack as a “massacre” against unarmed civilians, Maliki said Israel had shelled the hospital two days ago as well.

He also said that Israel’s “war machine” has killed over 1,300 children in Gaza and displaced over one million people in a week.

Maliki also slammed the international community that does nothing but “count the number of victims in Gaza,” adding that this “aggressive war” must be stopped.

A Gaza hospital strike that killed at least 200 people has unleashed a torrent of condemnation across the Arab world, with even allies blaming Israel for the attack, despite its denials.
