Al-Qedra accused Israel of escalating its targeting of hospitals and health facilities, noting that it destroyed 56 health institutions, arrested 35 medical personnel, and rendered the health system in the Gaza Strip completely incapacitated, Xinhua news agency reported.


Al-Qedra called on the United Nations and the World Health Organization to protect hospitals and health and humanitarian teams and to provide safe passage for the entry of medical supplies and fuel and the exit of the wounded.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF), meanwhile, said Hamas had deliberately embedded itself among civilians so that Gazans would bear the consequences of “Hamas atrocities”.

“Our war is against Hamas, not the people of Gaza. We are taking extensive measures to mitigate harm to the civilians that Hamas uses as shields,” the IDF said in an X post on its official account Monday evening.

Since October 7, Israel has been waging a large-scale war against Hamas after the latter launched an unprecedented attack on the Israeli towns.
