Rafah hospital closes due to Israeli bombs

TEHRAN, May 28 (MNA) – The Kuwaiti Hospital, one of Rafah’s two remaining hospitals, has been shut down due to Israeli attacks, its director said in a statement. This comes after two hospital medical staff were killed earlier by Israeli shelling.

Israeli forces have bombed a tent camp housing displaced people in a designated safe zone in Rafah, killing 45 Palestinians, most of them women and children, according to Aljazeera.

The attack has triggered an international outcry, leading to calls for a ceasefire.

The attack on the camp in Tal as-Sultan came after Israeli forces bombed shelters housing displaced Palestinians in other areas, including Jabalia, Nuseirat and Gaza City, killing at least 160 others, according to Palestinian officials.

Israel’s top military prosecutor described the Rafah attack as “very grave” and said an investigation is under way. Earlier, the Israeli military confirmed the attack, saying it targeted Hamas fighters.

At least 36,050 Palestinians have been killed and 81,026 people have been wounded in Israel’s war on Gaza since October 7. The death toll in Israel from Hamas’s attack on that date stands at 1,139, with dozens still held captive.
