The death toll from Israeli attacks on Gaza climbed to 560 people killed, while over 2,900 citizens were injured, the Palestinian health ministry declared on Monday.
The number of casualties is likely to rise as the Israeli army continues to bombard the densely populated coastal enclave.
The health ministry affirmed that medical teams are still working with all their capacities to save dozens of serious and critical cases in operating rooms and intensive care units, activating the emergency plan in all the hospitals and health facilities.
Meanwhile, the Israeli warplanes also targeted several civilian homes and buildings, including four UNRWA schools, six mosques, and three banks in different areas of Gaza during nighttime, dawn and morning raids.
The Israeli attacks also flattened residential buildings in giant explosions, including the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia town in the northern Gaza Strip and Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis.
Three medical personnel were killed, and three others injured in the attacks, while five ambulances were targeted.
Palestinian health officials had been issuing warnings of an imminent stop in the provision of medical services due to the lack of fuel needed to operate the electricity generators in hospitals and health facilities across Gaza.
As it puts the lives and property of civilians in grave danger, Israel’s aggression against the Gaza Strip represents a flagrant violation of international humanitarian and human rights laws.
The unjustified killing of civilians and healthcare workers constitutes a war crime, whose perpetrators should be held accountable and tried before the International Criminal Court. This brutal aggression highlights the need to prosecute those responsible and bring them to justice.
