Ammon News - On the 45th of the brutal Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, dozens of Palestinians were killed and injured as the bombing of hospitals and schools sheltering displaced people, as well as homes and buildings, continues unabated since October 7.

After destroying Al-Shifa Hospital in the south of Gaza City and putting it totally out of service, the occupation forces surrounded at dawn the Indonesian Hospital in the north of the Gaza Strip, targeting it with artillery shelling, which led to the death of 12 wounded people receiving treatment in it, while two medical personnel were wounded.

Medical sources said that the occupation artillery targeted the second floor of the hospital, which is the only one that receives those wounded from the aggression in the northern Gaza Strip.

They pointed out that thousands of displaced people inside the hospital, and about 150 wounded, in addition to the medical staff and workers in the hospital, whose number does not exceed 100, fear a massacre that the occupation forces may commit in the hospital by tightening the siege and continuous bombing.

The Israeli occupation forces are besieging the hospital with dozens of armored military vehicles in an area of less than one square kilometer, in addition to the deployment of snipers on the roofs of buildings near the hospital, which prevents ambulances from reaching it to transport the wounded since it is the only hospital that is partially operational in the north of the re-occupied Gaza Strip.

Also, 15 people were killed, including children and women, and dozens were injured after warplanes bombed homes near Abu Youssef Al-Najjar Hospital, in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

Tonight, the occupation warplanes launched a series of intense raids in the northwest of the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, leading to the death and injury of dozens.

Local sources reported that the occupation warplanes bombed with dozens of missiles the vicinity of the residential city of Hamad, northwest of Khan Yunis, which led to the death of dozens of people, most of them children and women, and the injury of others, in addition to a raid on the town of Bani Suhaila, east of Khan Yunis.

In Gaza City, a number of people were killed and others were injured as a result of an Israeli artillery shelling of al-Zaytoun neighborhood, south of Gaza City, in addition to another bombing in the al-Sabra neighborhood, while dozens of people were still trapped under the rubble in light of the rainy weather conditions and the difficulty of the arrival of the civil defense and ambulance crews to rescue them.

At dawn, the Israeli artillery bombed the Kuwait School, near the Indonesian Hospital, in the northern Gaza Strip.

Local sources reported that the artillery and tanks, which surrounded the Indonesian Hospital and bombarded its surroundings since the early hours of the night, fired several shells directly towards the Kuwait School, which is sheltering a number of displaced people.

The number of killed and injured, and the damage caused by the barbaric Israeli bombing on the school, was not known due to the interruption of communications in the northern Gaza Strip, as well as the inability of ambulances to reach the place due to the siege imposed by the occupation forces on the Indonesian Hospital and its surroundings, while initial reports speak of dozens of people killed and injured in the bombing.

The Ministry of Health said that the number of people killed in the Gaza Strip exceeded 12,200, including about 5,000 children, 3,250 women, and 690 elderly people, while the number of injured reached more than 29,500, and more than 4,000 are still missing, including 2,000 children.

At the same time, 205 health personnel and 36 civil defense personnel were killed, along with more than 215 wounded health workers. More than 60 ambulances were attacked, 55 of which were damaged and put out of service, while 26 of 35 hospitals in Gaza, and 52 of 72 primary healthcare clinics were out of service due to damage resulting from the bombing or lack of fuel.
