Gaza: Israeli forces attacked a mosque in Gaza, resulting in the martyrdom of 50 worshipers and numerous injuries.
An Israeli airstrike targeted a mosque in the Sabra neighborhood of the Gaza Strip, resulting in the martyrdom of 50 worshippers and wounding several others. The attack occurred during a prayer session when the mosque was filled with worshippers on Wednesday evening.
Additionally, another Israeli strike hit telecommunication towers in Khan Yunis, located in the southern Gaza Strip, leading to the death of at least one child.
On the same day, Israeli forces reportedly raided al-Shifa, Gaza’s largest hospital. The head of the Orthopedic Department reported that Israeli bulldozers and tanks invaded the facility, demolishing parts of the premises.
Israel had alleged that the hospital houses a “command center” belonging to Hamas, a charge strongly denied by the Palestinian resistance group. In response, Hamas has called on the United Nations to form an investigative team to refute Tel Aviv’s allegations concerning the hospital.
Contrary to Israeli claims, backed by U.S. President Joe Biden, about the presence of Hamas and underground tunnels inside the hospital, no traces of any tunnels were found, and Israel is yet to provide any evidence.
Reports from the Palestinian Administration’s Information Office claim that Israeli occupation forces opened fire on anyone attempting to leave the hospital, turning the facility into what they describe as a “graveyard”.
Furthermore, Israeli forces also attacked a Jordanian field hospital in Gaza, injuring 7 members of the medical staff.
Since October 7, when the Israeli regime intensified actions in the blockaded coastal territory, the toll has reached at least 12,000 Palestinians, including 4,710 children and 3,160 women, with around 32,000 others wounded.
