Heavily armed Israeli forces have stormed the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City using tanks and drones, firing at people inside the complex.

The government media office in Gaza said the raid, which was conducted early on Monday, sparked fear and panic among thousands of patients, medical staff and the displaced, and threatened their lives.

The new war crime “added to the black record of the occupation army, which is still committing various crimes and massacres, and continues … to eliminate the health sector and destroy hospitals” in the besieged Gaza Strip, it noted.

Gaza’s Health Ministry says some 30,000 people, including displaced civilians, wounded patients and medical staff are trapped inside the hospital.

The ministry said anyone “who tries to move is targeted by sniper bullets and quadcopter”.
