On the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 17, the day Christian communities in the Holy Land had dedicated to prayer and fasting for peace, an explosion went off at the Anglican hospital “Al Ahli” in Gaza, killing hundreds of civilians.
The bombing sent a shockwave through communities who had prayed throughout the day and ignited anger throughout the Middle East and across the world.
Approximately 500 people lost their lives in the explosion, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. As a hospital, the location was supposed to be protected by international law, and hundreds of people had found refuge there over the past week.
