French medical charity, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF), said on Tuesday that three doctors, including two of its own, were killed in a strike on the Al Awda Hospital in northern Gaza, saying it was “horrified” by the incident, Reuters reports.

MSF has regularly shared information about Al Awda as a functioning hospital and the presence of its staff in Al Awda to warring parties

it said in a statement.

GPS coordinates were also shared with Israeli authorities yesterday

It named the doctors as Dr Mahmoud Abu Nujaila (MSF), Dr Ahmad Al Sahar (MSF) and Dr. Ziad Al-Tatari. “Seeing doctors killed next to hospital beds is beyond tragic, and this must stop now,” it said.
