Meanwhile, the Director of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Dr Medhat Abbas, condemned the attack for targeting hospitals, ambulances and temporary placement centres.

In the latest attack, at least 20 were killed and 100 were injured in the worst attack in Shejaiya, East Gaza, yesterday.

The assault tanks were deliberately targeted at the market when people were buying daily necessities.

When the tank released their first attack, dozens of people fled and dragged injured victims.

“This caused the Israeli army to launch a second attack regardless of those trying to save victims. The grave situation is hard to imagine because many victims were burned.

“Once the ambulance arrived, the victims were sent to the Al Shifa Hospital. The other residents worked to put out the fire at the market,” said a witness, Abu Maysarah.
