Israeli airstrikes cause damage to homes, hospital in Gaza

GAZA, Friday, April 7, 2023 (WAFA) – A series of Israeli airstrikes targeting multiple locations across the Gaza Strip this early morning caused damage to dozens of homes across the besieged enclave as well as to Al-Durrah Children's Hospital in Gaza City, WAFA correspondent said.

Israeli F-16 fighter jets bombed with at least 12 missiles an agricultural land in the Al-Tuffah neighborhood in Gaza City, and also bombed with four missiles a target to the southwest of the city, causing destruction and fire to the sites bombed. No casualties were reported.

The Israeli airstrikes on Gaza City caused moderate damage to homes and public facilities adjacent to the immediate targets of the airstrikes, including the Al-Durrah Children's Hospital, whose building suffered material damage as a result of the airstrikes. Children hospitalized there as well as medical personnel were extremely terrified due to the massive explosions caused by the airstrikes near the hospital.

Israeli fighter jets also bombed a target with eight missiles in Deir el-Balah, in the central Gaza Strip, as well as another target in Khan Yunis, south of the enclave, with four missiles, causing damage to adjacent homes and facilities, as well as terrifying the local Palestinian civilians, especially children.

The Ministry of Health denounced the Israeli aerial attacks that caused damage to the Al-Durra Children's Hospital in Gaza City.

It said the attacks constitute a clear violation of international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention, which stipulates the protection of health institutions and their neutralization from military targets.
