'Every Innocent Life Matters'

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said on Wednesday (18 Oct) that the scenes from the Gaza City hospital blast that killed hundreds are "deeply distressing."
Albanese told reporters in Canberra that protection of civilian lives must come first.

"We condemn any indiscriminate attacks and targeting of civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, and Australia joins with others in calling for international law to always be upheld," he said.

A massive explosion at Al-Ahli hospital killed hundreds of people Tuesday, Hamas said, after intensifying bombardments near towns in southern Gaza rattled civilians where Israel had ordered them to take refuge.
Hamas attributed the blast to an Israeli airstrike, but the Israeli military said it was not involved and the explosion was caused by a misfired Palestinian rocket.
