200 patients have been evacuated to Gaza's south on Monday from the Indonesian Hospital, according to Gaza's health ministry, after Israeli tanks surrounded the medical facility, killing at least 12 people and injuring dozens of others as Israel intensifies its ground operations in northern Gaza. 

Snipers targeted those moving in or around the hospital, Gaza's health ministry said.

Residents of areas where the ground aggression was taking place said intense fighting was taking place between Palestinian armed groups and Israeli forces.

More than 13,000 people have been killed in Gaza since 7 October, when Israel launched its assault on the Palestinian territory.

The air and ground assault on Gaza followed a surprise attack on southern Israel by Palestinian group Hamas that killed 1,200 Israelis. Hamas also took more than 200 people hostage.

Israel has taken aim at other hospitals in the Gaza Strip, including by besieging the Al-Shifa hospital for more than week. More than 30 premature babies were evacuated from Al-Shifa on Sunday.
