The Palestinian Embassy in Nicosia declared three days of national mourning on Wednesday, following a deadly bombing of the Al-Ahli al-Arabi Baptist hospital in Gaza.

The Embassy said they will open a condolence book on Thursday and Friday between 9:30am and 1:30pm.

They said the mourning period will be held “in memory of the innocent Palestinian citizens, most of whom were children, who were murdered in cold blood … in Gaza City after the bombings by the Apartheid State of Israel.”
