WHO : condemns Isreali strikes on Red Crescent in Gaza

The head of the World Health Organization said he deplored the strikes on the Palestine Red Crescent Society headquarters in Gaza, branding them “unconscionable”.
WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said health must never be a target during conflicts, adding that Gazans were facing a “dire humanitarian catastrophe”.

“I deplore today’s strikes on the PRCS-run Al-Amal hospital,” Tedros said on X, formerly Twitter.

He said WHO staff and colleagues from the UN humanitarian agency OCHA undertook a mission to the facilities “where they witnessed extensive damage and displacement of civilians”.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said that Israeli occupation warplanes bombed its headquarters in the southern city of Khan Yunis, resulting in “five casualties and three injuries” among displaced people who had sought refuge there and at a nearby hospital.
