Israeli forces attack Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis and order evacuations, Health said

Hours earlier, in the midst of the siege of the center, a Palestinian was killed and several wounded in an Israeli attack on the hospital.

Israeli soldiers stormed the Nasser hospital in Khan Yunis on Thursdayin the south of the Gaza Stripand forced some people still inside to leave, denounced Gaza’s Ministry of Health, controlled by Hamas.

“The Israeli occupation attacks the Naser Medical Complex and turns it into a military barracks after the southern wall is demolished,” reported health spokesman Ashraf Al Qudra, adding that the army also had the ambulance department and tents of internally displaced persons in the medical facility attacked. .

They also ordered medical teams to transfer all patients to a specific hospital building, a near-impossible task for six patients requiring ventilatory assistance.

Hours earlier, in the midst of the siege of the center, a Palestinian was killed and several injured in an Israeli attack on the hospital.

For more than 25 days, health authorities have denounced the Israeli forces’ siege around Naser, and last Tuesday the army ordered the evacuation of 10,000 Gazans who took refuge in the medical facility.

According to Health, approximately 1,500 displaced persons were still hospitalized at this time, in addition to approximately 190 members of healthcare staff and approximately 300 of their family members.

Those gathered at the compound were also left without drinking water or food, and there were almost no medicines or medical supplies “for intensive care, surgery or emergencies.”

Naser Hospital is the largest medical center in southern Gaza, where Israeli forces have been carrying out a ground offensive since early December.

According to the NGO Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), “at least five people have been killed and another 10 injured in recent days by direct shots fired at the hospital.”
