GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel shelled the Youssef al-Najjar hospital in Rafah as it carried out a widespread assault on the southern Gaza Strip town on Friday.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli shells hit the hospital, but no injuries were reported.

Israeli forces have struck hospitals repeatedly over the course of the 25-day assault, including al-Wafa Hospital which was completely destroyed.

Five people were killed and dozens injured when Israeli forces shelled Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Hospital.

The PLO says that 13 hospitals and 10 clinics have been damaged in Israeli strikes since the beginning of the assault, while 12 ambulances have been damaged, 38 health personnel injured, and 15 health personnel killed.
