15 killed, 125 injured as Israel continues airstrikes on Gaza
GAZA, Aug. 8: At least 15 Palestinians have been killed and 125 injured as Israeli warplanes are continuing to strike military targets throughout the Gaza Strip for the second day on Saturday.
A woman was killed in the afternoon when an Israeli warplane struck a car in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza, bringing the total death toll in two days of Israeli airstrikes to 15, including a 5-year-old girl, according to the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza.
The ministry also warned that its medical services could stop within 72 hours because of the lack of fuel needed to operate the generators.
During a press conference, Ashraf al-Qidra, the ministry spokesman, announced the suspension of outpatient services and scheduled surgeries in all hospitals to ensure emergency operations for the injured in the "aggression."
The pharmaceutical situation in Gaza is going through its "worst" time in years, al-Qidra warned.
