PRCS calls for international protection to Al Amal Hospital

Friday 2-February-2024


The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) affirmed that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) continued to target and besiege Al-Amal Hospital for the twelfth consecutive day.

The IOF persisted in intense shelling and gunfire around the hospital, the PRCS said in a statement.

Meanwhile, four displaced individuals at the PRCS building were killed and six wounded as a result of shooting by Israeli snipers at the PRCS building in Khan Yunis.

The Director of the Youth and Volunteers Department in Gaza, Hidaya Hamad, was among those killed.

The PRCS appealed to the international community to assist and intervene to protect civilians, health care and humanitarian workers.

It also called for the opening of an urgent humanitarian corridor to evacuate the displaced people who are still trapped inside the hospital.
