Morning update

Good morning Middle East Eye readers,

It is just after 11am in Palestine and Israel. Here are the latest updates from the Israeli war on Gaza:

  • Israeli forces have killed at least one Palestinian as they opened fire at people trapped inside the Nasser hospital in Khan Younis, which has been under siege for more than two weeks. 

  • Israeli bulldozers and tanks are getting closer to the hospital's northern gate, putting the lives of 10,000 people at risk, including patients, doctors and displaced families, according to health officials. 

  • Elsewhere in Khan Younis, Israeli forces raided the al-Amal hospital, which is run by the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS). Troops damaged equipment, detained, interrogated, beat, and humiliated staff, according to the PRCS.

  • Hind Rajab, a five-year-old Palestinian girl who was trapped 12 days ago in a car under Israeli fire and called rescuers for help, has been found dead. 

  • Two PRCS medics, Yousef Zeino and Ahmed al Madhoun, who were sent to rescue Rajab, were also found dead after their ambulance was bombed.
