We are aware of the air strike that hit the residential compound housing the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) Emergency Medical Team (EMT). Israel has a right to defend itself against Hamas, but it must comply with International Humanitarian Law (IHL); including the protection of hospitals, civilians, and medical staff. We want to see Israel take greater care to limit its operations to military targets and avoid harming civilians.
