Dozens killed, injured as Israel targets convoy of ambulances leaving Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza

At least 60 Palestinians were killed and injured on Friday after Israel targeted a convoy of ambulances leaving Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, reported the Palestinian Shehab News Agency.

The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza said Israel targeted the convoy.

Israel’s military said on Friday it was looking into the report. Reuters could not immediately verify the report.

“We have informed the Red Cross in accordance with the international law about moving a convoy carrying injured people in ambulance vehicles from Al-Shifa hospital,” Ashraf Al-Qudra, the health ministry spokesman, said in a statement.

“At the gate of the hospital and then at the Ansar square, the occupation targeted the convoy in more than one location outside Al-Shifa hospital.”
