15 killed in Israeli attack on ambulance convoy near Gaza’s largest hospital
Earlier on Friday, Israel targeted the vicinity of Al-Quds Hospital, and the Indonesian Hospital.
At least 15 Palestinians were killed and dozens of others injured in an Israeli airstrike on an ambulance convoy in front of the gate of the Al-Shifa Hospital, the largest facility in Gaza City, on Friday, November 3, Al Jazeera reported.
The Israeli forces targeted ambulances which were transporting high-risk patients with severe injuries from al-Shifa hospital to Egypt for treatment, via the Rafah Border, Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said in a televised press conference.
“An Israeli bombing also targeted ambulances in two other locations on Al-Rashid Coastal Street that were carrying wounded people to the south to reach the Rafah land crossing to transport them to Egypt,” the spokesman added.
Video footage widely circulated on social media showed bloody and chaotic scenes.
