Gaza official says Israeli shells hit hospital 

61

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip | Israeli tank shells struck a hospital in central Gaza on Monday, a health official and a doctor at the facility said. The health official said the shells killed at least four people and wounded 60, including 30 medical staff.

The Israeli military said it was looking into the report.

Health official Ashraf al-Kidra said 12 shells hit the Al Aqsa hospital in the town of Deir el-Balah. He said the shells landed in the administration building, the intensive care unit and the surgery department.

Live footage on Hamas’ Al Aqsa TV station showed wounded being moved on gurneys into the emergency department.

A doctor at the hospital, Fayez Zidane, told the station that shells hit the third and fourth floor as well as the reception area.

“There is still shelling against the hospital,” he said. He said he found bits of a rocket, presumably from one of the projectiles.

Zidane appealed to the Red Cross and a nearby hospital to send help.

How many missiles were launched from that hospital?

Those individuals making statements to the media should be questioned if there was rockets fired from hospital. Arafat (PLO) used this technique and it has been used by Hezbalah, Al Quieda, Wahhabi, Hamas and the other terrorists organizations. I doubt they have changed their normal policy of hiding out among the women and children, to attack Israeli or other personnel. If Gaza citizens are going to live with Hamas, then they take the results. Take control of their land, and kick the terrorists out, or die with them. Same thing happens in USA when gangs attack other gangs, with families (collateral damage) happening.
