Israeli raids destroy a hospital for cancer patients in Gaza

Since the early hours of the morning, today, Monday, the occupation army has continued to launch raids with warplanes, artillery, and gunboats in various parts of the Gaza Strip, focusing on the north.

Local sources reported to the Palestinian News Agency (Wafa) that the occupation warplanes bombed several areas in Beit Lahia, Jabalia, and Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.

WAFA added that Israeli aircraft launched several raids in the Al-Nasr neighborhood and Al-Jalaa Street, northwest of Gaza, and artillery bombed the area east of Al-Maghazi in the middle of the Strip, and east of Khan Yunis.

Last night, the Ministry of Health in Gaza announced the destruction of the only Turkish Friendship Hospital for cancer patients in the Strip after it was targeted by the Israeli army.

The hospital’s general director, Sobhi Skaik, said that a state of panic is affecting cancer patients and the hospital’s medical staff, adding that the occupation has not only increased the suffering of cancer patients and deprived them of medicines and travel for treatment abroad, but is now endangering their lives by targeting the hospital.

The occupation authorities also continued their threats to bomb Al-Quds Hospital this morning, after they launched a fire belt around the hospital affiliated with the Palestinian Red Crescent in order to force the displaced people inside it to head south.

WAFA quoted local sources as saying that 12,000 citizens fled to the hospital as a safe haven, in addition to about 400 patients, as well as the wounded, who were now threatened by bombing.
