Israeli army targeted on Friday the Mays Al Jabal Hospital in southern Lebanon, state media reported, as tensions between the neighboring countries remain high since the Oct. 7 cross border offensive by Palestinian group Hamas.
An unexploded 155-caliber artillery shell landed in the courtyard of the hospital, the official National News Agency reported.
Israel also shelled the outskirts of the southern villages of Al-Odaisseh and KfarKila, it added.
Lebanon’s Health Ministry in a statement condemned the attack on the medical facility, adding that it injured a health worker and inflicted damage to the emergency department — "in flagrant defiance of all the international laws and treaties.”
