The Ministry of Health condemns the Israeli attack on Al-Durrah Children Hospital in Gaza

The Israeli occupation forces have targetted the vicinity of Al-Dorra Children’s Hospital in the Al-Tuffah neighborhood, east of Gaza, on 26 December 2020. The bombing left dozens of sick children and their mothers, as well as health workers, in shock.

The bombing caused confusion in the workplace, impeded the provision of health services, causing massive damage to the contents of the hospital, smashed windows, and scattered rubble in children’s rooms and other sensitive sections.

The sick children spent a harsh night of fear and cold inside the hospital as a result of the Israeli attack, which would cause serious psychological repercussions on them.

MoH confirmed that the occupation did not take any measures to avoid damaging the hospital, calling on all international bodies to protect health facilities and spare them the risks of repeated Israeli aggressions.
