Government Media Office: Israel killed more than 100 scientists and academics in the war

The government media office in the Gaza Strip said on Thursday that Israel killed more than 100 scientists, academics, university professors and researchers during the war on the Strip.


The office said in a statement: “The Israeli army killed more than 100 scientists, academics, university professors and researchers during the genocidal war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.”


He considered that these practices "represent a clear message from the occupation, aiming to completely eliminate scholars and researchers in the educational sector."


During the war, the Israeli occupation army completely destroyed more than 103 universities and schools, in addition to partially destroying 311 universities and schools, according to the same source.


He stressed that "Israel kills and assassinates scientists, and the American administration is engaged in genocide, and even contributed to the continuation of this war."


The Government Information Office held Israel and the US administration “fully responsible for this historic crime.”


He also called on universities and educational sectors in all countries of the world to "condemn this crime, which falls within the framework of the crime of genocide."


He called on the countries of the free world and all organizations related to education in the world to "condemn this historical crime, and to exert pressure on Israel to stop the war of genocide against students, against schools and universities, against scholars, professors and researchers, and against the educational process in general."
