Edwards Hospital in critical care after being hit by a rocket attack.
The Edwards Health Care System is in critical situation after a rocket fired from Gaza hit a facility near the hospital.
This was the second rocket attack in the past two weeks that hit the facility, which has more than 30,000 patients and staff.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said a patient was taken to the hospital in stable condition after receiving treatment for a concussion.
It was unclear if the patient is an employee.
Edwards is about 1,200 miles north of Tel Aviv and about 150 miles from the Gaza Strip.
More than 1,300 people were evacuated from the area after the rocket attack, the hospital’s spokesperson said.
Israel has a military operation known as Protective Edge, in which it maintains a buffer zone around the Gaza strip.
Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the rocket launch “very serious and extremely dangerous.”
Netanyahu, who has been criticized for his silence on the matter, also called the rockets aimed at the hospital “very dangerous,” but did not say who was responsible.
“We will not stop fighting Hamas and its allies in Gaza,” Netanyahu said in a statement.
“We will continue to use all our force to protect the lives and safety of our citizens in Israel, and will continue the fight against terrorism wherever it may be found.”
A statement from the hospital stated that the hospital had received “multiple rockets in the last 24 hours, including one that landed on the roof.”
It added that the rocket was fired at a nearby military outpost and was intercepted by an Iron Dome interceptor system.
The IDF did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In the last two weeks, the rocket barrage has targeted medical facilities in the West Bank and the Gaza-Israel border, and Israeli officials say the rockets have caused civilian casualties.
The Israeli army has said it will continue its efforts to protect hospitals and other critical infrastructure in the Gaza border zone.
The rocket attack comes as Israel has struggled to contain the spread of the disease, which affects up to half of the population and causes respiratory problems, pneumonia, brain damage and kidney failure.
The United Nations has called for an end to rocket fire from Gaza and other coastal areas, but there has been no international response.
In January, a senior Hamas official called on the world to “take notice of the dire situation in the heart of the Gaza” after the death of two Israeli soldiers.
