Journalists and media organizations should come to the Gaza Strip and see the destruction caused by Israel since Oct. 7, Hamas said in a written statement on its social media platform Telegram on Tuesday.
"We call on international journalists and media outlets to intensify their presence in the Gaza Strip in order to see the extent of the destruction and the indicators of genocide that the occupation army and the Nazi army are carrying out against children, defenseless civilians, and all infrastructure," Hamas said in a statement.
The statement pointed out that the bodies of dozens of Palestinian civilians were found under the rubble in the Sabra area and other parts of Gaza City, adding that the extent of the destruction of the Islamic University confirms the horror that the people of Gaza are exposed to. It was also stated that the aim of these Israeli attacks is to deliberately destroy all living facilities and infrastructure and to force the people of Gaza to migrate.
