GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The only medicine company in the Gaza Strip was targeted during the Israeli offensive, causing the company half a million dollars in losses, executives said Monday.

The general manager of Middle East Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics Laboratories, or Megapharm, told Ma'an that the company lost almost $500,000 after airstrikes hit equipment, raw material and electricity generators.

Dr. Marwan al-Astal added that the company produces only medicine, and Israel has no “excuse” for targeting it “because they know it is a medicine company.”

The company needs at least two months to recover and rebuild what has been destroyed by Israeli attacks.

Yet another consequence of a conflict largely unnecessary. Gazans will have plenty of time to contemplate how much they lost and how little they gained from this Hamas adventure.

Bombing hospitals, ambulances and now this company. Bombing water and electra facility's, stopping ambulances from getting victims, schools, shelters are targets. In short, "Israel" wants to make sure the Palestinians die. (If not now than later because of the poison and no water)
