The Palestine Red Crescent Society announced the evacuation of approximately 8,000 displaced people from Al-Amal Hospital and the Society's headquarters in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, after a two-week siege by Israeli occupation forces.
The association said these displaced people lived in an “atmosphere of terror and panic” during the entire period of the siege as a result of constant bombing and shelling.
He said in a statement that the occupation forces summoned a member of the association's executive office, the general director of al-Amal Hospital, Haider al-Qudra, and the hospital's administrative director, Maher Atallah, and took them to an unknown destination.
The Red Crescent indicated that only 40 displaced elderly people remained in Al Amal hospital, in addition to approximately 80 sick and injured people and 100 administrative and medical staff.
Anatolia Agency said hundreds of Palestinians discharged from al-Amal hospital and Red Crescent headquarters were displaced to the city of Rafah in the far south of the Gaza Strip.
