Seventy Killed in Israeli Airstrike on Khan Younis


Nov 21, 2023

On Sunday, at least 70 people were killed in a hospital in the city of Gaza after an Israeli airstrike in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Dozens of patients, many of them children and young people, had to be treated for severe burns at Nasser Hospital. Médecins Sans Frontières’ project manager in southern Gaza, Christophe Garnier, stated that the medical needs are enormous. The group is ready to expand its operations but requires basic security guarantees and unrestricted access to medical and humanitarian supplies. A ceasefire is necessary to stop the ongoing bloodshed, he demanded. Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced that the attacks in Gaza would continue and soon be expanded to the south. He urged northern residents to flee to a southern zone west of Khan Yunis on the Mediterranean. Most recently, residents of Khan Younis were also asked to flee for the first time.
