GAZA – Dozens of people have been killed in an Israeli air raid on the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza, according to a medical official and Palestinian authorities in the besieged territory.
“More than 50 people have been killed,” Dr. Atef al-Kahlout, director of the Indonesian Hospital, told Al Jazeera. He said the hospital was unable to yet provide the total number of casualties as it was still counting the victims.
The health ministry in Gaza said more than 50 people were killed and scores of others wounded in the Israeli bombardment.
“More than 50 martyrs and around 150 wounded and dozens under the rubble, in a heinous Israeli massacre that targeted a large area of homes in Jabalia camp in the northern (Gaza) Strip,” a health ministry statement said.
According to TRT, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza has said at least 100 people have been killed in Israeli bombardment on the Jabalia refugee camp in the Palestinian territory.
The six-block residential neighbourhood in the camp has been completely destroyed.
