Gaza official says Israeli shells hit hospital

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - A Palestinian health official says Israeli tank shells have struck a hospital in the central Gaza Strip, killing four people and wounding 60.

The official, Ashraf al-Kidra, says 12 shells hit the Al Aqsa hospital in the town of Deir el-Balah on Monday.

He says shells landed in the administration building, the intensive care unit and the surgery department. He says 30 of the 60 wounded are medical staff.

Live footage on Hamas' Al Aqsa TV station showed wounded being moved on gurneys into the emergency department.

The Israeli military says it's checking the report.
