According to preliminary information, a building located behind the Al-Quds Hospital compound was hit.

Al-Quds Hospital in the northern part of the Gaza Strip has come under shelling, the Al-Hadath television channel said on Sunday.

According to the TV channel, several rounds were fired at the hospital. According to preliminary information, a building located behind the hospital compound was hit.

Palestine’s interior ministry confirmed on its Telegram channel that “Israeli forces delivered a strike on an area near Al-Quds Hospital.”

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said earlier that the Israeli authorities had issued another order to evacuate people from the hospital.

A spokesman for the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said on Monday that the hospital cannot be evacuated because it houses around 12,000 displaced persons and more than 400 patients.

Israel has targeted several Palestinian hospitals, including Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital on October 17.

Nearly 500 Palestinians were killed and hundreds more injured in the hospital massacre, considered the worst single act of violence carried out by Israel in Gaza in many years. 

Israel has, thus far, killed over 8,000 Palestinians in Gaza, and wounded more than 20,000.

Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

On Friday night, Israel intensified airstrikes and expanded its ground operations in Gaza, while knocking out all communications for Palestinians in the besieged Strip.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
