Israel Denies Bombing Gaza Ambulance, Killing Medics

Defense News ,Israel & Gaza War :- The Israeli military has denied allegations that it bombed an ambulance in central Gaza, resulting in the tragic deaths of four medics and two others. The army stated that after reviewing the details provided, they found no evidence of a strike in the reported area.

On Wednesday, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported that six people, including medics, were killed in an Israeli strike on their ambulance at the entrance to the Deir al-Balah area. Photos from the scene showed the ambulance's roof completely destroyed and part of the vehicle crushed.

Jagan Chapagain, the head of the International Federation for Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, condemned the attack as "unacceptable" in a social media post.

Crowds gathered for the funerals of the medics, with a shredded and bloodied Palestinian Red Crescent uniform placed atop one of the white shrouds. The Red Crescent explained that the ambulance was on Salah al-Din Road, a significant highway in Gaza often used by Palestinians fleeing military actions.

Earlier on the same day, the health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza reported multiple casualties in an Israeli strike near a hospital in Deir al-Balah.

The ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel has resulted in a high toll, with over 23,350 people killed, mostly civilians, in more than three months of war. Before this incident, the health ministry reported the destruction of over 120 ambulances and the loss of at least 326 healthcare workers since the conflict began.

The war began with a Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, resulting in around 1,140 deaths in Israel, mostly civilians, according to official figures. The Israeli military has reported 186 soldiers killed in the fighting in Gaza.
