At least 20 Palestinians were killed and others were wounded in a violent Israeli bombing that targeted the vicinity of the Indonesian Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israeli warplanes launched a series of violent raids in the vicinity of the hospital, which houses tens of thousands of wounded, sick, and displaced people, the majority of whom are women and children.

According to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA, the bombing also caused serious damage to some hospital facilities.

A spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza told Al-Jazeera that Israel’s systematic attack on healthcare facilities and hospitals is aimed at putting the health system out of work.

“Today, we have lost basic services, and hospitals are unable to carry out their functions,” the spokesman said.

Earlier on Thursday, Israeli airstrikes targeted three ambulances, the Al-Nasr Medical Complex and Al-Shifa Medical Complex.

Israel has, thus far, killed over 10,569, including 4,324 children and 2,823 women, and wounded 26,475 wounded. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

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.
