Over 400 Pales­tini­ans killed in Is­rael’s siege on Gaza’s al-Shi­fa Hos­pi­tal

Gaza’s media office said more than 400 people – patients, war-displaced and healthcare staff – have been killed in Israeli attacks during 13-day siege of al-Shifa Hospital.

“Over the course of 13 days since storming the al-Shifa Medical Complex, the “israeli” occupation army has committed crimes of destruction, arson, and targeted 1,050 homes, killing more than 400 martyrs and arresting and torturing hundreds of patients, displaced people, and medical staff in and around the al-Shifa Medical Complex,” the media office said.

It said: “The occupation army still holds 107 patients hostage, including 30 wheelchair-bound patients and about 60 medical staff members, inside the al-Shifa Complex under inhumane conditions, without water, medicine, food, or electricity. The occupation prevents all attempts to evacuate these patients through international institutions, putting their lives at significant risk.”

At least 82 Palestinians have been killed and 98 injured in Israeli strikes in the past 24 hours, according to the latest figures from the Gaza health ministry.

At least 32,705 Palestinians have been killed and 75,190 injured in Israeli strikes on Gaza since 7 October. The majority of the victims are women and children.
