In the past 24 hours, 23 people were killed and 91 others injured, the ministry added in a statement.

Israeli army tells Gazans fleeing Khan Younis to head to Al Mawasi

The Israeli army has now told people fleeing Khan Younis to head to the "Al Mawasi humanitarian zone", clarifying a post from more than 13 hours ago that simply stated, "you must evacuate immediately to the humanitarian zone".

"The call to move toward the Al Mawasi humanitarian zone does not apply to the patients in the European Hospital or the medical staff working there," the Israeli military said.

"There is no intention to evacuate the European Hospital in the Khan Younis area," they added.

Although Al Mawasi is described as a humanitarian zone by the Israelis, Palestinians recently fled the area due to Israeli tank fire and air strikes.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society also evacuated its temporary headquarters in Al Mawasi on June 29.
