The Jordanian army’s field hospital in Khan Yunis in the besieged Gaza Strip has been severely damaged by Israeli shelling.

A hospital staff member was injured and would be flown back to Jordan for treatment while a patient was hit with shrapnel, the army said in a statement on Wednesday. 

“The hospital incurred heavy damage. The government will take all the measures necessary as a result of the aggression,” the statement said, without elaborating.

The hospital is one of two that Jordan’s armed forces run in Gaza. The facility suffers from acute medical shortage amid Israel’s bombardment.

Medical sources have warned of a deteriorating humanitarian disaster in Gaza. Roughly 350,000 patients in chronic conditions are without medication in the Palestinian territory.

The Israeli regime launched the hostilities in Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas carried out the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in response to the regime’s atrocities against the Palestinians.

Since the start of the aggression, Israel has killed more than 24,000 people, mostly women and children. The Tel Aviv regime has cut off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living in Gaza.

Hospitals in Gaza have also been among the targets of Israeli bombings since that October day.
