Gaza hospitals continue to be attacked in alleged Israeli “war crimes”

The only hospital in the central Gaza Strip was struck by Israeli tanks in Deir al-Balah on July 21, 2014.

Middle East Eye reported the following,

“The al-Aqsa hospital in central Gaza was hit at around 4pm local time (14:00 GMT). At least five people, including a patient were killed and 70 wounded, with reports emerging that ambulances, that rushed to transport the wounded, were also targeted. According to Palestinian officials it was the only hospital servicing some 350,000 Palestinians although it has been badly damaged in the attack.

The Palestinian Health Minister quickly lashed out at the strike describing it as “barbaric” while human rights groups called on Israel to abide by international law and do everything in its power to protect medical facilities and civilians.”

My friend Gazan photographer Shady Alassar went to view the damage and took the following photographs.
