His full statement to the Deutsche Welle read:

“International law has evolved over the past decades. It is no longer possible to misuse the incoherence between laws for combatants and civilians to argue that a functioning hospital could ever become a legitimate target. It is categorically a violation of international law, and requires prosecution under the strictest enforcement mechanisms of the international community.”
