The number of casualties from the latest Israeli massacre in Gaza City has reached 112 dead and 760 injured after Israeli forces fired on Palestinians gathered at the Nabulsi roundabout on Rashid Street west of Gaza City, said ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra.

Al Jazeera network ran footage showing several bodies and injured people arriving at Al-Shifa Hospital.

Dr. Hussam Abu Safiya, the director of the Kamal Adwan Hospital, said it had received at least 10 bodies and 160 wounded people.

Fares Afana, the head of the ambulance service at Kamal Adwan, said medics arriving at the scene found “dozens or hundreds” lying on the ground.

He said there were not enough ambulances to collect all the dead and wounded and that some were being brought to hospitals on donkey carts.

MD Mohammad Salha, the acting director of the Al-Awda hospital, said it received 90 wounded and three dead, who were transferred to Kamal Adwan.

“We expect a rise in the number killed,” he said. “There are many wounded still at the reception and the emergency room.”



Salha said Al-Awda is largely out of commission, with no electricity and the operating room running on battery power with only hours left. Gaza's health sector is under severe strain nearly five months into the Israeli war on Gaza.

The Palestinian health ministry in Gaza says nearly 30,000 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the war, two-thirds of them women and children.
