Fears of a possible strike on Gaza’s Al-Quds Hospital grow after Israel ordered its “immediate” evacuation and as bombardment continues.
Deadly Israeli raids continue in the occupied West Bank, where more than 112 Palestinians have been killed in three weeks.
UN says at least 33 aid trucks entered Gaza on Sunday, bringing the total number of trucks crossing into Gaza to 117.
More children have been killed in Gaza in the last three weeks than the total killed in conflicts around the world in every year since 2019, Save the Children said.
Impeding relief supplies to Gaza’s population may constitute a crime under the International Criminal Court’s jurisdiction, the court’s top prosecutor said during a visit to the Rafah border crossing.
At least Israel-Hamas conflict 8,005 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza in Israeli attacks since October 7. More than 1,400 people were killed in Israel.
Everyone terrified’ at Gaza hospital – doctor
We’ve been reporting throughout the day on the bombing in the area of the Al-Quds Hospital, a major facility in northern Gaza.
The Israeli military earlier issued an evacuation order for the hospital, but staff have said that moving the hundreds of patients currently being treated there would not be possible.
Our news reporter tonight received a message from an unnamed doctor at the clinic saying that “heavy bombardment has now begun in the vicinity of Al-Quds Hospital.”
“Everyone, Everyone, especially the children, is terrified,” he said. “They bomb the [residential] towers behind the hospital.”
We also earlier received a voice note from an unnamed Gaza resident who said: “They have bombed two residential towers, and now they’re bombing the third one. God protect us.”
Footage thought to have been shot from inside the hospital showed rooms filled with dust and windows blown out.
