Over 500 Killed In Attack On Baptist Hospital In Gaza

Israeli Armies Find Bodies Of Hostages In Gaza, Reveals Next Action Against Hamas

An attack on Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital located in the Gaza Strip has left over five hundred people reportedly killed.

Naija News learnt that the attacked hospital is where thousands of displaced Palestinian civilians are seeking medical treatment and shelter from attacks.

The Palestinian health ministry on Tuesday revealed that the attack was carried out by Israeli airstrikes.

The spokesperson of the IDF, Daniel Hagari had said the forces did not have any knowledge regarding what happened at the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital.

He said, “We will get the details and update the public. I don’t know to say whether it was an Israeli air strike.”

Hagari in another report said the explosion was caused by a failed rocket launched by Hamas, the political and militant movement in Gaza.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has also issued a statement condemning the deadly strike on the hospital in the Gaza Strip.

The global health body demanded the immediate protection of civilians and health caregivers.

The statement said, “The hospital was operational, with patients, health- and caregivers, and internally displaced people sheltering there. Early reports indicate hundreds of fatalities and injuries.

“The order for evacuation has been impossible to carry out given the current insecurity, critical condition of many patients, and lack of ambulances, staff, health system bed capacity, and alternative shelter for those displaced.

“WHO calls for the immediate active protection of civilians and health care. Evacuation orders must be reversed.

“International humanitarian law must be abided by, which means health care must be actively protected and never targeted.”
