Gaza, The Gulf Observer: Israeli warplanes made a direct hit on the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital in Gaza, inflicting severe damage, the hospital director has said.
“Israeli warplanes bombed the third floor of the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital, the only hospital in Gaza for cancer patients,” Dr Subhi Skaik told Türkiye’s Anadolu.
He added that the Israeli bombing “caused extensive damage, as a fire broke out in the floor before being contained.”
Skaik also said the Israeli bombing damaged some of the electromechanical systems, as well as exposed medical staff and patients alike to danger.
In an earlier statement, he said that the Israeli army had repeatedly bombed the vicinity of the hospital in recent days.
