Iranian press: Israeli aircraft struck solar panels and generators of a hospital in Gaza
Israeli warplanes struck solar panels and power generators at the Gaza Strip's largest hospital, Al-Shifa.
According to the Iranian news agency Tasnim, a large fire broke out in a medical facility as a result of an Israeli air force strike.
The Israeli army attacked the area adjacent to the Al-Shifa central hospital, located in the administrative center of the Palestinian enclave. In addition, airstrikes were carried out on a convoy of ambulances transporting injured Gazans to the Rafah checkpoint on the border with Egypt. As a result of this strike, 15 people were killed, and about 60 more were injured of varying degrees of severity.
The IDF press service stated that members of the radical Hamas group were allegedly traveling in the ambulances. In turn, Israeli President Isaac Herzog said that the main command headquarters of the Palestinian movement was allegedly located on the territory of the Al-Shifa hospital and added that the IDF will stop at nothing and will continue the military operation until the complete destruction of Hamas.
In connection with the incident, the World Health Organization called for an immediate ceasefire. The Hamas movement, in turn, blamed the Israeli strikes on obviously civilian targets, in particular on refugee centers in the Gaza Strip, on the US administration and personally on American President Joe Biden, whose support “gave courage to Israel.”
