Tuesday 12-December-2023


The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed on Tuesday the Martyr Kamal Adwan Hospital in Beit Lahia, north of the Gaza Strip, after besieging and bombing it for several days.

Spokesman for the health ministry Ashraf al-Qudra said that Israeli soldiers started to gather the male citizens, including medical staff, in the hospital’s courtyard, expressing his fears that the IOF could kidnap them and then execute a number of them.

Qudra appealed to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Red Cross to act immediately to save and protect the lives of those in the hospital.

Yesterday evening, the director of the Kamal Adwan Hospital said that the IOF directly bombed the facility’s maternity ward, killing two women with their two children and cutting off the legs of a third woman.
