WHO: Hospitals in Gaza Bombed

The largest hospital in Gaza, where up to 50,000 people are sheltering, is facing bombardment, the World Health Organization has said.

Palestinian officials said Israel launched airstrikes on or near at least three hospitals on Friday, as US secretary of state, Antony Blinken, warned that 'far too many Palestinians have been killed' in the war.

Night-time footage shows people gathered outside al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City. An explosion can be heard and people are seen shouting and fleeing from the site.

Margaret Harris, a WHO spokesperson, said 20 hospitals in Gaza were out of action and that there was 'intense violence' at Shifa.
