Several social media videos are showing people injured in what was described as the outpatient clinic of Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City.
It’s unclear what struck the hospital, but the videos show injured people lying on the ground of the outdoor clinic. Witnesses in the videos are saying it was strikes on the area. CNN could not verify it was strikes and has reached out to the Israel Defense Forces.
Many Gazans have been sheltering in al-Shifa hospital. The IDF has claimed that Hamas are hiding in tunnels under the hospital. CNN could not verify the claim.
“This is the waiting area covered by corrugated metal sheet under which internally displaced persons were refuging,” according to Medhat Abbas, the director general of the Hamas-run health ministry.
The IDF and Hamas have been reporting ground fighting in different areas of northern Gaza.
Some context: Strikes landed in the vicinity of two separate hospitals – the Indonesian Hospital and the Al Awda Hospital – in northern Gaza, injuring 10 people and damaging hospital vehicles and infrastructure, according to a statement posted on Facebook by the Al Awda hospital.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said one of their volunteers had been injured and two ambulances rendered unusable by a strike near Al Awda hospital.
The group also shared images and a video of two ambulances with their windscreens shattered in what appears to be the hospital parking lot. It was not immediately clear PRCS was referring to the same ambulances mentioned in the hospital’s statement.
Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated Medhat Abbas' title. He is the director general of the Hamas-controlled health ministry in Gaza.
