Saudi Arabia condemns Israel’s raid on Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, calling it a “blatant violation of international law” in a statement from the Foreign Ministry.

It also condemned what it said was shelling near another hospital and called on international bodies to hold Israel accountable.

Israel says its troops are carrying out a targeted operation in Shifa, where it has long accused Hamas of maintaining an underground command center — claims supported by the US. Hamas and hospital staff have denied the allegations.

Israeli forces searching the medical compound since yesterday say they have found guns and other indications that Hamas terrorists were inside, but have not shown any evidence regarding the alleged command center.

Before the war, Saudi Arabia was in talks with the United States over potentially normalizing relations with Israel.
