Israeli airstrikes hit three Gaza hospitals and a school, resulting in at least 22 deaths. One hospital is under a ground battle. The strikes occurred in northern Gaza, where Israel claims Hamas militants operate. Israel alleges Hamas is using hospitals as human shields, a claim denied by the group. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken expressed concern over civilian casualties and welcomed Israeli humanitarian pauses but called for further action to protect civilians. A Palestinian envoy criticized Western states for not applying international laws to Israeli actions in Gaza, contrasting with their stance on Ukraine.
