A nurse and an ambulance driver have been killed in Israeli strikes on two hospitals located in Gaza, medical aid group Médecins Sans Frontièrs (MSF) said Saturday.

“Following the escalation between Israel and Gaza, Israeli forces struck the enclave’s ‘Indonesian hospital’ and an ambulance in front of ‘Nasser Hospital’ in southern Gaza,” MSF said on X, formerly known as Twitter. “The strikes killed one nurse, one ambulance driver, injured several and damaged an oxygen station.”  

MSF has been supporting the “Indonesian hospital” since 2021, and Nasser hospital since 2011. Both hospitals are located in Gaza. 

“Health care facilities cannot become targets,” MSF said, urging all parties to respect health infrastructure, “which must remain a sanctuary for people seeking treatment.” 

“The scale of this new round of hostilities must not be underestimated, with Palestinian and Israeli authorities reporting massive casualties all over Israel and Gaza,” it added.
