The Spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra announced that the Israeli occupation army is now conducting a heavy bombing raid on the vicinity of the Shifa Medical Complex and hospitals in northern Gaza.
The Spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza added, “Ambulances cannot move as a result of the insane bombing.”
Hossam Badran, a leader of the Hamas movement, said, “The continued bombing in the vicinity of Al-Shifa Hospital belies the occupation’s stories that its forces have reached the hospital.”
For its part, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said that “violent raids launched by the occupation on the vicinity of Al-Shifa Hospital and Al-Shati Camp, including the launching of phosphorus bombs.”
The advisor to the Palestinian Minister of Health in Gaza, Fathi Abu Wardeh, confirmed in Friday’s morning that the health system in the Strip has completely collapsed.
The Israeli occupation army stormed central Gaza with tanks and military vehicles, for the first time since the ground incursion kicked off on the outskirts of the strip.
The occupation army is completely surrounding Al-Rantisi Hospital in the Gaza Strip and is approaching Al-Shifa Medical Complex, the surrounding area and its outpatient clinics which have been bombed since Thursday evening.
Palestinian media confirmed that the occupation forces are also besieging Al-Nasr Children’s Hospital, the surroundings of which were bombed earlier on Friday.
