Israeli occupation forces bombed Al-Rantisi Children’s Hospital in the center of the city GazaWhich led to a huge fire breaking out in the basements and parking lots.
Pictures obtained by Al Jazeera showed the flames completely consuming the cars, while some people were trying to extinguish them with ordinary water hoses. Some cars appeared inside the hospital, completely charred.
Ministry of Health spokesman Ashraf Al-Qudra told Al Jazeera that the bombing led to cars catching fire, from which the fire spread to the wounded’s wards, noting that the displaced people in the hospital and the medical teams were able to control the fire.
Al-Qudra confirmed that the hospital is now operating on tank water and that only the pediatric intensive care department is working in it. He said that continuing this situation threatens a disaster within hours unless the world intervenes.
He explained that the hospital houses more than 6,000 displaced people, wounded, and medical teams, including 25 children in intensive care.
The hospital director, Mustafa Al-Kahlot, had sent out a voice call for help across the island in which he appealed to the world to intervene and prevent hospitals from being targeted, and said that the fire was eating green and dry land.
