Gaza: Relentless Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, which have continued for the 12th day, coupled with strict blockades, have led to the depletion of essential facilities in hospitals. Doctors in the hospital courtyards are now forced to perform surgeries on patients without anesthesia.
According to media reports, fresh attacks on residential buildings in Gaza City and the southern regions have resulted in the deaths of several Palestinians, including women and children. The ongoing violence has caused damage to schools in Khan Yunis, under the United Nations, and following the hospital assault, Israel has massacred 433 more Palestinians in a single day. The number of Palestinian casualties in Israeli attacks has now exceeded 3,900, with over 13,500 people injured.
According to Dr. Medhat Abbas, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the hospital courtyards, operation rooms, and emergency rooms are overcrowded, with hundreds of individuals, predominantly innocent children, lying on the floor.
Dr. Medhat Abbas stated that operations are being performed in the courtyards of Gaza’s hospitals without anesthesia, in an effort to save the lives of those who still have a chance while others have been left to die.
Relief and Works Agency of the United Nations has warned that time is running out for the people of Gaza, stressing the immediate need for relief supplies. The message is clear: Gaza is facing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis.
The United Nations agency has also highlighted that drinking water in Gaza has been depleted, and children are forced to drink contaminated water. The situation in Gaza is dire, and Khan Yunis saw its first case of chickenpox yesterday. If people in Gaza do not die from Israeli military attacks, they may succumb to contamination and the spread of infectious diseases.
