Israel bombs hospital in southern Gaza: Palestinian Red Crescent

The Palestinian Red Crescent has said Israel bombed a hospital in Khan Younis, and the regime’s army in the city reportedly threatened the few healthcare facilities still open in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Red Crescent said on Friday that displaced people were injured “due to intense gunfire from the Israeli drones targeting citizens at Al-Amal Hospital” as well as the rescue agency’s base, Reuters reported.

Israeli army tanks also approached Gaza’s biggest remaining functioning hospital, Nasser, where people reported hearing shellfire from the west.

The Gaza health ministry said at least 142 Palestinians had been killed and 278 injured in Gaza in the past 24 hours in Khan Younis, taking the death toll from more than three months of war there to 24,762.

The World Health Organization said most of the enclave’s 36 hospitals have been damaged by Israeli bombing. Only 15 are partially functioning and those are operating at up to three times their capacity, without adequate fuel or medical supplies, it says.

On Thursday, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas announced the destruction of more than 390 schools, universities, and educational institutions in over 100 days of brutal bombardment of the besieged strip by the Israeli regime.

The resistance movement said, “More than 390 schools, universities, and educational institutions have been destroyed in 100 days, the most recent of which was the bombing of Al-Isra University and the re-bombing of the Islamic University today.”

Hamas said that the destruction of school and university buildings in the Gaza Strip “is a war crime and criminal behavior aimed at destroying all components of human life.”

The resistance group stated that Israel is deliberately targeting the education system to erode the national identity of Palestinians.
