World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says a team with the United Nations organisation was at the Al-Aqsa Hospital compound when the Israeli military targeted a journalists’ tent in the courtyard.

The official said in a post on X that four people were killed and 17 injured, but WHO personnel – who were at the hospital assessing medical needs and collecting incubators to send to northern Gaza – are accounted for.

“We again call for protection of patients, health personnel and humanitarian missions. The ongoing attacks and militarisation of hospitals must stop. International humanitarian law must be respected,” Tedros said.

“We urge parties to comply with the UN Security Council resolution and ceasefire!”
