GAZA – An attack on an ambulance convoy in Gaza City on Friday killed at least 15 people, according to Gaza Ministry of Health.
BBC news reported that Israel confirmed that it hit an ambulance, but said that Hamas fighters had been the target, without providing evidence.
A school hosting displaced civilians and people evacuating south were also hit by Israel, according to the ministry, killing at least 20 and 14 people respectively.
United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, concluded a trip to Israel on Friday, where he met Prime Minister Netanyahu.
He would travel to Jordan on Saturday for a summit with several Arab leaders.
At least 9,227 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, 2023.
More than 1,400 people have been killed in Israel.
Meanwhile, an Israeli drone fired a missile at the Gaza house of Hamas’s political leader Ismail Haniyeh, who was currently outside the enclave, Al-Aqsa Radio has reported.
It was unclear whether any of his family members were at the house when it was struck.
Haniyeh had been outside the Gaza Strip since 2019, residing between Turkey and Qatar.
In a televised address broadcast on Wednesday, Haniyeh accused Israel of “committing barbaric massacres against unarmed civilians.”
