Israel attacked Palestinian medical facilities 600 times since Gaza war: WHO

The World Health Organization said Friday that since Israel’s war in Gaza began, hospitals and other medical infrastructure have been attacked nearly 600 times in Gaza and the West Bank.

WHO said 613 people have died within health facilities in occupied Palestinian territories since October 7.

WHO spokesperson Christian Lindmeier said in a statement "ongoing reduction of humanitarian space plus the continuing attacks on healthcare are pushing the people of Gaza to breaking point."

According to WHO data, 304 attacks occurred on health care facilities in the Gaza strip and 286 in the West Bank.

The Israeli regime waged the war on Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in response to the Israeli regime’s atrocities against Palestinians.

The relentless military campaign has killed more than 22,800 people, most of them children and women. At least 58,166 Palestinians have also been wounded.
