The Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry said several displaced people who had taken refuge at a church complex in the Gaza Strip were killed and injured after an Israeli attack late Thursday.
The strike left a “large number of martyrs and wounded” on the grounds of a Greek Orthodox church, the ministry said.
Witnesses told AFP that the attack appeared to target a target close to the place of worship where many Gazans had taken refuge as the war raged in the Palestinian enclave.
When contacted, the Israeli military told AFP it was checking the reported attack.
