At least 12 people were killed in a new Israeli siege on the Indonesian hospital in Gaza, according to Hamas
The Ministry of Health in Gaza, controlled by Hamas, announced that at least 12 people, including wounded and medical staff, were killed today in direct attacks launched by the Israeli army on the Indonesian hospital located near Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip. . . Ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qudra said, “The Israeli occupation forces put thousands of wounded, medical personnel, and displaced people in the circle of death as a result of their direct and repeated attacks on the Indonesian hospital.”
According to the Ministry of Health, this is “a new crime committed by the Israeli occupation against hospitals in the Gaza Strip,” stressing that the Indonesian “was exposed to tank artillery shelling,” which led to many wounded, including the head of the orthopedic department. Dr. Adnan Al-Barash suffered a serious head injury.
Israel has attacked several hospitals in the Strip in recent weeks, under the pretext that Hamas activists are hiding there, although the most famous was last week’s siege of Al-Shifa Hospital, the largest in the Strip located in the city of Gaza. Israel claims that Hamas had its main command center in the basement of that hospital, and yesterday presented evidence that supposedly supports that hypothesis: it showed the discovery of 55 meters of a fortified underground tunnel; It showed videos from the same day of the October 7 attack showing how several injured abductees were taken to Shifa, and claimed to have forensic evidence that captive soldier Marciano was killed by Hamas inside that hospital, after being injured in a bombing.
After nearly a week of siege and entering some areas of the complex several times, Israel on Saturday ordered the evacuation of everyone inside Al-Shifa Hospital, about 3,000 people, including medical staff, the wounded and the displaced. Dozens of people have died and been seriously injured, including many premature babies, due to the siege and lack of medicine, water and fuel. During the evacuation, many moved to the south of the Strip, where Israeli attacks are less severe, but some, especially those seriously injured and who could not bear this exodus, headed to the Indonesian hospital in Jabalia, north of Gaza City. Which was subjected to an Israeli attack today. (Effy)
