The Secretary-General of the red Crescent society of the United Arab Emirates Muhammad Ali Falahi accused Hamas of using medics as human shields. He qualified the actions of Palestinian Islamists like a betrayal.
Falahi said that during the operation «Indestructible rock» in the summer of 2014, the UAE launched on the Gaza strip a field hospital. Through the international Red cross its coordinates were handed over to Israel to not attack its territory.
«I first talk about it, but someone in the leadership of Hamas decided to fire rockets into Israel from the territory of the hospital – specifically to call back. They were ready to bring doctors and patients into a victim,» said Falahi.
After the operation is completed the hospital was abandoned. Personnel and equipment were to leave the Gaza strip via Rafah crossing.
«Not only that, Hamas accused us of spying for Israel. He reported us to the jihadists operating in the Sinai Peninsula – say, foreign spies are running, get ready for Jihad», — said the doctor.
