Iran lambastes ‘terrorist Israeli army’s war on Gaza hospitals’

The Foreign Ministry lambastes the Israeli regime’s numerous destructive attacks against healthcare facilities, including hospitals, across the Gaza Strip, which is enduring a genocidal war by Tel Aviv.

“The war on the Gaza Strip’s hospitals and treatment facilities serves a sorrowful and painful part of the [ongoing] trend of the terrorist Israeli army’s war crimes and genocidal operation against the sliver’s population,” spokesman Nasser Kan’ani wrote in a post on X on Wednesday.

Israel launched the war on Gaza on October 7 after Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory operation into the occupied territories.

So far during the military onslaught, the regime has killed more than 32,500 Gazans, most of them women, children, and adolescents.

Throughout the campaign, the regime has also knocked as many as 33 hospitals across Gaza out of service.

Kan’ani noted that, only throughout the previous 24 hours, Israeli forces had set fire to the surgery ward at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, and laid a siege and bombed al-Amal Hospital in the city of Khan Younis in southern Gaza, making it incapable of rendering medical services. The forces, he added, had also attacked the Nasser Hospital in the same city, arresting a number of the homeless and wounded people there and committing assault and battery against the facility’s medical staffers.
