At 10:00 am this morning, Sunday the fourth of January 2008 , while the medical team of Al Awda Hospital (AL Awda hospital belongs to the Union of Health Work Committees) carrying out their humanitarian duties responding to the help calls coming from civilians at the area of Beit Lahya (the Western roundabout) an ambulance driver Mr. Kahled Abu Sedah accompanied by first rescue officers (volunteers) Mr. Ala'a Sarhan and Mr. Arafah Abdeldayem moved to the area. When the ambulance reach the area and while evacuating the wounded an Israeli tank bombardment targeted the ambulance. All medical staff inside the ambulance were wounded as follow:
