‘They want pictures of suffering’: Hamas accused of refusing aid for ‘propaganda’

Senior Advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu, Mark Regev, has slammed Hamas for refusing Israel’s offers of either medical aid or evacuation for hospital patients while also accusing them of wanting “pictures of suffering”.

He told Sky News Australia Hamas has “prevented any humanitarian solution” after Israel presented petrol and incubators to the Al-Shifa Hospital.

Mr Regev also claimed Israel offered to evacuate all patients from the hospitals.

“From their point of view, I think they want pictures of suffering – they think that helps their propaganda,” he said.

“We have come with proposals once again to help the situation to help people either leave, evacuate the site or to bring in the power they need for the fuel and in both cases, Hamas has closed the door.”
