GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Israeli tank shells struck a hospital in central Gaza on Monday, a health official and a doctor at the facility said. The health official said the shells killed at least four people and wounded 60, including 30 medical staff.<br />
The Israeli military said it was looking into the report.<br />
Health official Ashraf al-Kidra said 12 shells hit the Al Aqsa hospital in the town of Deir el-Balah. He said the shells landed in the administration building, the intensive care unit and the surgery department.<br />
Live footage on Hamas' Al Aqsa TV station showed wounded being moved on gurneys into the emergency department.<br />
A doctor at the hospital, Fayez Zidane, told the station that shells hit the third and fourth floor as well as the reception area.<br />
"There is still shelling against the hospital," he said. He said he found bits of a rocket, presumably from one of the projectiles.<br />
Zidane appealed to the Red Cross and a nearby hospital to send help.
