Toddler 'killed in ICU' as Israel bombs Gaza City hospital

July 24, 2014 8:43 P.M. (Updated: July 25, 2014 11:17 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A toddler was killed and dozens of other Palestinians were injured in a Gaza City hospital late Thursday as an Israeli bomb struck the area, medics said.

Ibrahim al-Sheikh Omar, two-and-a-half years old, was in the ICU of Muhammad al-Durra hospital when an Israeli strike hit outside.

Medical sources said the boy was hit by shrapnel from the explosion, killing him on the spot.

Thirty other Palestinians were injured in the strike.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an she was looking into the incident.

The army has repeatedly claimed that hospitals have been used as launching grounds for Palestinian militants during the Israeli offensive on Gaza.

On Monday, Israeli shells left four dead and wounded 60 at the al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al Balah.

The attacks have also raised alarm around the world, as more than 50 mosques have been bombed as well as thousands of homes.

UN rights chief Navi Pillay said Wednesday that Israel's military actions in the Gaza Strip could amount to war crimes.

"There seems to be a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes," Pillay told an emergency session on Israel's Gaza offensive at the UN Human Rights Council, citing attacks that have killed Palestinian civilians, including children.

Pillay added that the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli civilian areas does not justify war crimes on the Israeli side.
