Report: Hamas invades Red Crescent hospital

Palestine Press Agency reports that Gaza government forces broke into the headquarters of the Palestine Red Crescent Hospital and expelled its staff and doctors. The Hamas forces also took hospital files.

Even though that news outlet is very anti-Hamas, most of its stories end up checking out. Since stories like these are not reported by the Gaza-based press due to fear of Hamas, the only place to read about egregious Hamas abuses like this is the Palestine Press Agency. (Ma'an will only cover it when PCHR or some other organization publicly complains about Hamas abuses; they then have cover to publish the story in the context of the third party accusation. )
