MEHR: On early Friday, six people were killed following the Israeli regime's strike that hit the al-Shifa Hospital complex in Gaza.
Several raids were underway across the Palestinian territory early on Friday, and reports indicate intense fighting between Israeli forces and young Palestinians, Al Jazeera reports.
In the last 24 hours, at least 19 Palestinians have been reported killed by Israeli forces bringing the total number killed in the occupied West Bank to 176 since October 7.
Israeli forces have “violently bombed” the Tal al-Hawa area of Gaza near al-Quds Hospital, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.
The hospital announced on Thursday that it was shutting down “most operations” after running out of fuel due to the Israeli military’s complete blockade of Gaza.
There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Another Israeli strike was also reported in the vicinity of al-Awda Hospital in the Tal al-Zaatar area north of the Gaza Strip, resulting in damage to an ambulance, according to a video clip posted by Al Jazeera Arabic on social media.
Abu Salmiya, director general of al-Shifa Hospital, told Al Jazeera Arabic early on Friday that six people were killed following the Israeli strike that hit the al-Shifa Hospital complex.
The Palestinian news agency, Wafa, also reported six people killed.
Earlier, Abu Salmiya reported four injuries, including two in critical condition, following the strike.
He said Israeli forces continue to bomb areas near Gaza’s largest medical facility, which also shelters thousands of Palestinians who have been forced to flee their homes.
