Tel Aviv: Hundreds of patients are stranded in hospitals in northern Gaza as the Israel-Hamas war rages, the head of the UN refugee agency for Palestine refugees has said.
The war between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas has been going on since October 7. In this war that has been going on for almost three weeks now, innocent people are losing their lives. Hundreds of patients are stuck in hospitals in the north of Gaza as the fighting escalates day by day, the head of the UN refugee agency for Palestine has said. On Sunday (yesterday), the Israeli army bombarded areas near Al-Quds Hospital in Gaza. The doctors also say that they told the hospital staff to leave Al-Quds Hospital.
But doctors lamented that many of the patients are under intensive care and cannot even be moved. The Palestinian Red Cross says Israel continues to carry out airstrikes in the area. About 14,000 civilians are said to have taken shelter in the hospital and its grounds. A 23-year-old Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli forces at the entrance to the city of Yatta in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.
In a statement released by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 93 people were killed today in the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip. Israel’s assault on Gaza since October 7 has killed 8,306 people. This includes 3,457 children, 2,136 women and 480 elderly. Also, 21,048 people were injured. 1,950 people are missing, including 1,050 children. Due to lack of water, waterborne diseases and skin diseases are prevalent. “Stop the war on our people,” said Palestinian Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh. Earlier, it is noted that more than 1400 people were killed in the attack by Hamas in Israel.
