The Israeli army is targeting the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in the central Gaza Strip with drones, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said on Sunday.

“The Israeli occupation is terrorizing the patients and medical staff at the facility by attacking it with drones,” the ministry said in a statement, adding:

“The Israeli drones intensively fire towards the buildings and areas of the hospital, targeting anyone in motion.”

The statement also said that the wounded and patients are currently trying to flee the hospital under the fire of the drones.

Death Toll Rises as Israel Continues to Bomb Civilian Targets in Gaza

The ministry condemned Israel’s action saying that the Israeli army’s attempt to take the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital out of service constitutes a death sentence for thousands of wounded and patients inside.

Doctors Without Borders, a non-governmental medical charity, announced late Saturday its withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, including the Al-Aqsa Hospital, amid increasing Israeli army attacks.

Since the beginning of its aggression on Gaza, Israel has systematically targeted hospitals and medical centers in the besieged Strip.

  1. It’s public knowledge that ” Israel ” uses America weaponry, i’m sure it was America controlling those drones. this has been a proxy war for decades. in September 2023, Biden armed Palestine, look it up. No one has stopped it because America runs the world. Who would put THEM in charge? i object to what my government has done.
