Palestine´s Health Minister Yusuf Abú Rish told the press that the laboratory stopped operating following the Israel Army´s missiles hit the area. Abú Rish explained that the Faisal al-Shawa building was the main target of the attack, but unfortunately the lab was located on the opposite street and it was hit by the missiles.
Journalistic media indicated that only 1% of Gaza´s population was vaccinated against Covid-19 and experts fear an outbreak of the disease due to the crowding of people in shelters to protect themselves from bombs and missiles.
In this regard, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned about the high risk of contracting the deadly disease from the ‘displaced population and damage caused’, which includes road destruction that hinder ambulances to roll over.
WHO also said that in recent days Israel launched 91 attacks on Gaza´s health centers, killing 222 Palestinians and injuring 6,046.
Amid growing condemnation from several governments worldwide, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the performance of his Armed Forces and announced the attacks will continue.
‘The order is to keep hitting the targets,’ stressed Netanyahu, who said he had approved the ‘operational plans.’
