al-Wafa geriatric hospital being bombed by Israel AGAIN


Israeli tanks are shelling Gaza’s Al-Wafa hospital, whose 14 patients include some who are paralysed or in a coma, and several people have been hurt, the facility’s director said Thursday.

“Israeli tanks are shelling the hospital, they have hit several of the floors, and several nurses have been injured,” director Basman Alashi told AFP.

The hospital in Gaza’s Shejaiya district has come under Israeli fire several times before, and the Israeli military has called on Alashi and other doctors to evacuate it.

Alashi told AFP on Wednesday that it was almost impossible to move the patients, most of whom are immobile, and he questioned where they could go.

“There is no place safe in Gaza! If a hospital is not safe, where is?” he said.

“They are tearing the hospital apart, bit by bit.”
