Israeli Airstrike on Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital Kills Four; Injured Include Seven Journalists

HeadlineApr 01, 2024

On Sunday, an Israeli airstrike hit a tent encampment outside of Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah. The attack killed four people and injured 17 others, including seven journalists. The BBC reports the tent closest to the explosion belonged to the Turkish news agency Anadolu. The Palestinian photographer Ali Hamad described the attack.

Ali Hamad: “They hit the tent without any warning. We were staying in the tent as a group of journalists, peacefully, with no terrorists among us. We were preparing our cameras, and all of a sudden the tent was hit. Everything went dark, with debris and rocks flying above our heads, and there were flames.”
