Moscow: The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said on Saturday that its aircraft had struck Hamas fighters after they have launched an anti-tank missile toward the territory around the Gaza Strip.

Earlier in the day, the Gaza Strip’s Hamas-linked government accused the IDF of striking at convoys of Gazans attempting to evacuate as was Israel’s demand. It said Israeli strikes left 70 people killed and more than 200 injured.

“IDF aircraft targeted Hamas terrorists immediately after they launched an anti-tank missile toward the area surrounding the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said on Telegram.

Meanwhile, a Jordanian field hospital in the Gaza Strip was completely shut down as a result of Israeli bombing, Jordanian broadcaster Al-Mamlaka reported.

On October 7, Palestinian movement Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip, prompting Israel to declare a state of war the following day and launch retaliatory strikes. On October 9, Israel ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food and fuel. Both Israel and Palestine have reported over 1,000 deaths and thousands of injured as a result of the escalation.
