Israeli forces set fire to homes near al-Shifa Hospital: Report

Israeli forces have set fire to residential buildings near al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, according to the Geneva-based Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor. 

"In several incidents, Israeli forces set fire to homes while occupants were inside, preventing evacuation or fire extinguishing," it said in a statement on X.

"We urge the Secretary-General of the UN and the Commissioner of the EU to intervene immediately, demanding that Israel cease its serious violations against civilians in Gaza City, including burning residential buildings and forcibly displacing residents towards southern Gaza."
