No End to Israeli War Crimes in Gaza: Targetting Schools and Hospitals

SAY #iSupportGaza LIKE 535.000 PEOPLE WORLDWIDE DO!

The Ministry of Health Gaza expresses its horror and outrage at the latest Israeli massacre moments ago at an UNRWA school sheltering displaced persons in Beit Hanoun. Ten people have been killed and there is a large number of wounded.

This follows hard on the heels of yesterday’s massacre in the governate of Khan Younis.

In the farming village of Khuza’a at least 25 civilians are believed dead and 16 wounded. Two thirds of the homes have been destroyed and 60 percent of the population has fled, while the rest are prevented from leaving by ongoing attacks and sniper fire.

Israeli tanks and special forces are currently surrounding emergency vehicles and ambulances seeking to retrieve the dead and wounded, and have seized some of the critically-wounded victims.

In the neighbouring villages of Abasan and Bani Suheila 17 people have been killed, and another seven in Al Qarara, including pharmacist Dr Ibrahim al Halaq.

Medical staff are afraid to travel to their work, and risk death from the Israeli bombardments.

In the last 24 hours, Balsam Hospital in North Gaza was attacked for the second time.

Three hospitals have now been forced to evacuate their patients following Israeli strikes, causing overcrowding in other hospitals, such as Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, which is struggling to cope.

One Response to No End to Israeli War Crimes in Gaza: Targetting Schools and Hospitals

  1. And of course, if anyone denounces the attacks, it’s always “but they’re hiding weapons in there.” — blaming the victim gets no points from me. It’s tragic, it really is. Nice post.
