Physicians for Human Rights Israel (PHRI) said that three hospitals came under attack during the Israeli military assault on Jenin, “severely damaging their operational capacity”.

The Israeli military also prevented ambulances from evacuating the wounded during the assault on Jenin, and “in a further escalation, Israeli forces stormed Jenin’s governmental hospital, firing tear gas and live bullets”, the human rights group said in a tweet.

“Five civilians were injured as a result, including three in serious condition. According to reports, the emergency room is still unusable, and other hospital departments haven’t returned to normal operations,” the organization said.

“When hospitals are attacked and their protected status is ignored, the resulting damage is severe: patients and staff are injured, residents lose confidence in the hospital as a haven… The trust in medical facilities, personnel, and their capacity to provide care and protection is lost,” PHRI said.
