At least 14 Palestinians killed in two Israeli air strikes on houses in Rafah


At least 14 Palestinians were killed in two Israeli air strikes on houses in the town of Rafah, near the border with Egypt, health officials said.

According to Reuters, the Israeli military issued a statement with video of air strikes and troops going house-to-house, saying it killed three Hamas company commanders and a squad of Palestinian fighters, without giving specific locations.

On the other hand, Israeli tanks are positioned around the Indonesian Hospital complex in north Gaza where 12 people were killed and dozens wounded, the enclave’s health ministry said.

Palestinian news agency Wafa said the facility was hit by artillery fire.

Like many other health facilities in embattled Gaza, the Indonesian Hospital, set up in 2016 with funding from Indonesian organisations, has ceased operations. But health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qidra said there were about 700 people, including medical teams and wounded, inside the facility.
