A series of Israeli attacks targeted Palestinian hospitals and medical staff in Gaza on Friday night. 

Three hospitals were attacked. They include Al-Shifa Hospital, Al-Quds Hospital, and the Indonesian Hospital. 

The director of Al-Shifa Medical Complex said that “a massacre in front of the compound as a result of the Israeli shelling” is a “full-fledged crime.” 

He said that Israel had targeted the gate of the complex, where medical staff and hundreds of displaced civilians were gathered. 

He also said that medical teams and paramedics were killed in front of the hospital when their ambulance convoy was struck, even though the convoy movement was coordinated with the Red Cross. 

Al-Jazeera correspondents said that at least 15 Palestinians were killed and scores more were wounded in the Israeli attack. 

Earlier, Israel targeted the vicinity of Al-Quds and Indonesian hospitals in what seemed to be a coordinated attack at Gaza’s medical facilities. 

Gaza hospitals are already in a major crisis, many of them went out of service as they ran out of medicine, beds, fuel, and more.

The Israeli military said that it is ‘verifying reports’ that an ambulance convoy has been attacked. 

On October 17, Israel bombed the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital, killing nearly 500, mostly displaced Palestinians and wounding hundreds more.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza said that more than one ambulance convoy was targeted in different locations and that the Israeli action was coordinated and deliberate.

The attack on the Indonesian hospital is continuing, according to the director of the hospital who spoke to Al-Jazeera.
