The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Friday heavily showered the medical tents erected near Gaza’s eastern border with teargas canisters injuring dozens of medics.
Spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qedra said that the IOF deliberately attacked medical tents east of Gaza, Khan Younis and Rafah cities causing dozens of suffocation cases among the medical staff.
He added that the Ministry’s ambulances were another target of the IOF fire, noting that these attacks hindered the work of the medical staff during the protests.
In a related context, the Ministry said that the IOF intensified their targeting of the children peacefully taking part in the protests.
