The Gaza Government Media office, in a statement Monday, said that the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) killed approximately 400 civilians during their siege of Al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City.

“The IOF destroyed and burned down 32 hospitals in the Gaza Strip, rendering them out of service,” the statement added.

The Office condemned the crime of destroying Al-Shifa Hospital and held the Israeli Occupation responsible.

The IOF announced today that it has completed its military operations at Al-Shifa Hospital - which has been ongoing since March 18.

"Troops have completed precise operational activity in the area of the Shifa Hospital and
exited the area of the hospital," the IOF said in a statement.

The IOF further claimed that its forces captured around 900 suspects, with over 500 of them classified to be “terrorists,” along with killing 200 Palestinian resistance members.

Over the past two weeks, the IOF has been carrying out what it labeled as "precise operational activity" at the Al-Shifa Medical Complex.
