The spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qudra, confirmed shortly after midnight that 47 individuals were martyred, and several have been wounded as a result of the massacre committed by the Israeli occupation in Al-Maghazi Refugee Camp.
According to Arab media, a significant number of serious injuries had accumulated on the ground outside the emergency department of the Indonesian Hospital: adding that the majority of the martyrs and wounded from the Al-Maghazi massacre were children and women.
Tragically, the ministry specified that among the martyrs was a 10-day-old baby of the Abu Aweimer family.
Earlier today Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila announced that Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip have led to the loss of over 150 healthcare workers’ lives and the destruction of 27 ambulances.
“Israeli crimes against the health care system of the Gaza Strip resulted in the death of 150 medical workers and the destruction and failure of 27 ambulances,” al-Kaila said in a statement published by the Palestinian Health Ministry.
The Health Minister also reported that 16 hospitals and 32 primary healthcare centers had to cease their operations due to Israeli strikes.
The Israeli occupation continues to bombard residential areas, hospitals, ambulances, UN schools, as well as vital infrastructure in the Gaza Strip amid a stifling blockade that has banned the entry of vital resources, such as fuel, food, and medicine, with the health sector being seriously jeopardized by the stifling siege.
