Russia says hospital explosion ‘a crime’

Russia says a blast at a Gaza hospital compound that Hamas health officials claim killed hundreds of people was a “crime” and is demanding Israel produce evidence that it was not responsible.

“Regarding our assessment, we certainly qualify such an act as a crime, as an act of dehumanization,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova says on Sputnik radio.

Israel “must not just comment in media outlets or on social media, it must produce the evidence,” she says.
