Red Crescent Makes Urgent Appeal: We Fear Repeat of Ahli Hospital Massacre – BREAKING

The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRCS) appealed to the international community to take urgent and immediate action to prevent a new massacre at Al-Quds Hospital in Gaza.

The appeal was made shortly after PRCS received a threat this evening from the Israeli occupation army to evacuate, in order to avoid a repeat of the massacre at Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital.

The Society said in a statement that it had received a threat from the occupation authorities to bomb Al-Quds Hospital.

It added that the Israeli army demanded “the immediate evacuation of the hospital, which houses more than 400 patients and about 12,000 displaced civilians who have sought refuge there as a safe place.”

The vicinity of the Al-Quds hospital had been heavily shelled two days earlier, Aljazeera Net reported.

The association called on the world to take immediate and urgent action to prevent a new massacre such as the one that occurred in Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital, where nearly 500 Palestinians were killed on Tuesday.

The head of the government media office in the Gaza Strip, Salama Maarouf, also warned of a repeat of the massacre of the National Baptist Hospital.

‘No Longer Safe’

On the other hand, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) announced today that five schools supervised by Palestinians in Gaza City are “no longer safe” after receiving an Israeli warning.

The schools require “immediate” evacuation, it said.

Since October 7, the Israeli army has continued to target the Gaza Strip with intensive air strikes that destroyed entire neighborhoods and left about 4137 people dead, in addition to over 13,000 wounded.
