The Israeli Army has confirmed having attacked an ambulance convoy, since one of them, he said, was being used by “a Hamas terrorist cell”, in a “combat zone”, in reference to the recent attack on the Shifa hospital in Gaza City. “A number of Hamas terrorists were killed in the attack,” a military spokesman said in a statement.
The Army has indicated that they will publish more details about the attack, and that they have shared “intelligence information” with other agencies with which they cooperate. “We have information that proves Hamas’ methods to transfer terrorist operatives and weapons in ambulances,” stressed the Army, which has insisted that the attack zone is a “battle area”and Civilians must evacuate to the south for “your own safety.”
For its part, the Gaza Health Ministry, controlled by Hamas, has indicated that 13 people died and 26 were injured in the attack by Israeli aircraft against the ambulances with wounded people leaving the Shifa hospital, where thousands of people were taking refuge.
The Ministry has denounced that, despite the fact that they had notified the Red Crescent and the international community of their intention to take wounded people to the south for subsequent transfer to Egypt, “the occupation forces committed this crime”. “We urge the International Community to force the occupation forces to account for this crime against medical personnel and ambulances,” said a statement from the Ministry of Health.
The Ministry had reported hours earlier about the intention to charter a caravan of ambulances with wounded people heading to the south of the Strip at 4:00 p.m. local time (2:00 p.m. GMT) through Al Rashid Street and asked the Red Cross to accompany the convoy. . “Given the urgent need to save the lives of the wounded (…), we ask everyone to fulfill their responsibilities and announce that a convoy of ambulances will move with a large number of wounded to transfer them to the south of the Gaza Strip “the note then stated.
The health authorities have explained that there are “Hundreds seriously injured and in critical condition” that they can no longer be treated at the Al Shifa hospital and that “they require admission to hospitals in the Arab Republic of Egypt.”
