Attacks on hospitals expose Israel’s “self-defense” claims as lies
Displaced Palestinians seek refuge at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City on 27 July.

A baby was delivered at al-Aqsa hospital in Gaza last Thursday. That should not be news; babies are born all the time. What was remarkable about this birth is that the child’s mother had been killed by the Israeli military.
The delivery of this child is a testament to the professionalism and dedication of the hospital’s staff. Three days earlier, Israel attacked the hospital with tank shells. At least five Palestinians were reported dead.
Last Wednesday, Israel completely leveled al-Wafa rehabilitation and geriatric hospitalto the ground, after two weeks of missile strikes and threats of heavier attacks.
