Israeli airstrikes and artillery attacks damaged a pediatric hospital, a center for disability services and several homes in the besieged Gaza Strip early Saturday morning, Palestine Chronicle correspondent Wafa Aludaini reported.

Israeli warplanes fired five missiles east of the neighborhood of Tuffah in Gaza City injuring a six-year-old girl and a young man, according to our reporter and eyewitness’ accounts in the targeted area.

Israeli media, citing official sources, claimed that the latest round of Israeli bombings targeted sites that belong to the Palestinian movement Hamas, which currently governs the Gaza Strip.

A fire broke out at the location of the airstrike as the firefighters worked all night to put off the fire in the attack that took place an hour after midnight. Electric power was also cut off to several areas east of Gaza as a result of the strikes.

Israel claimed the attacks came after two missiles were fired from Gaza and fell in open areas in southern Israel without causing damages or injury.

“It was a horrible night for the children at the Al-Durrah Hospital, due to the missiles fired by the Israeli occupation warplanes, which caused serious damage to the hospital, spreading fear and panic among children and their families,” Dr. Majed Hamadah, manager of the hospital, told our correspondent.

“This is not the first time that the Al-Durrah Hospital has been bombed by the Israeli occupation, despite the fact that it is a pediatric hospital,” Dr. Hamadah added.

  1. It is difficult to understand what kind of mentality the Zionist barbarians have. They cry about the holocausts but out doing the Nazis by far. It is time to treat the Zionists and they supporters in the same manner. Unfortunately Both the US and Canadian governments secretly rewards this kind of crime by providing a tax free charity status allowing billions to be sent out to support the criminal regime. History will repeat and only the decent Jews will suffer. I know how just how Israel is acting having lived under the Jewish communist regime and fought against it. They have no morals and are racist.
