The Israeli forces attacked an ambulance in front of a hospital called Al-Shifa in the besieged Gaza Strip of Palestine. 15 people were killed on the spot. At least 16 people were injured. Aljazeera reported such an incident on Friday (November 3).
According to the report, Israel has acknowledged the attack on the ambulance in Gaza. They claimed that Hamas members were using the ambulance. That is why the attack was carried out. However, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has claimed that such accusations by Israel are false.
Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told a press conference in front of Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital on Friday that the first attack took place in Gaza City. The ambulance driver and a health worker were seriously injured. But the next attack on the ambulance fleet took place on the premises of Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. There 15 people were killed and 16 people were injured.
Earlier, on October 17, Israel carried out a terrible attack on a hospital called Al-Ahlil Arab. The Gaza Ministry of Health said that more than 500 hundred people died together in that attack.
On the other hand, the country’s official said that at least 14 Palestinians, including children, were killed while fleeing south along the Gaza coastal road in a separate attack. More than 9,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza so far in the Hamas-Israel conflict, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health.
Israel has occupied the West Bank since the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, and its forces regularly attack Palestinian resistance there.
