Israel ‘Hits Hospital’ As Death Toll Tops 500

Four people have been killed and a further 70 injured after Israeli tank shells hit a hospital in central Gaza, according to Palestinian medics. Thirty of those wounded in the attack were reportedly medical staff. Health official Ashraf al Kidra said 12 shells hit the intensive care unit, surgery department and administration building at the al Aqsa hospital in the town of Deir el-Balah.

Footage on Hamas’ al Aqsa TV station showed chaotic scenes at the facility. In an earlier Israeli airstrike, 26 members of the same family were killed near Gaza’s southern border with Egypt. Israel also suffered more deaths, with seven soldiers killed in a gun battle, said the country’s military.
