Ofcourse. It was Israel's mission from the moment Hamas was elected to power, to punish the Palestinians for voting for them by starting a blockade, getting the US, and the puppet dictator Hosni Mubarak to join in, and as soon as they Gaza lay under siege, they began assassinating Hamas targets, which gave an excuse ground invasion in 2008 which was meant to not only attack miitants shooting rockets, but meant to destroy all civilian infrastructure to punish the Gazans.
A World Health Organization (WHO) assessment of 122 health facilities in Gaza revealed that 48% were damaged or destroyed during the offensive: 15 hospitals and 41 primary health care centres were partially damaged; two primary health care centres were destroyed; and 29 ambulances were partially damaged or destroyed. They also killed journalists. Click for link to article which was noted
