Major Gaza hospitals suspend operations as Israel hunts Hamas

Two major hospitals in northern Gaza have closed to new patients due to Israeli bombardment, a lack of fuel and medicine, and the risk of patients already being treated dying. The hospitals are blockaded by Israeli forces and are struggling to provide adequate care. Israel claims it is targeting Hamas militants in the area and believes the hospitals should be evacuated. However, medical staff argue that there are fewer and fewer places for the injured to go, and patients are unable to receive necessary treatment. The situation is dire, with premature babies being placed on ordinary beds due to the bombing of the building housing incubators. The hospitals are running on limited power and resources, and the risk of losing more lives is increasing. Gaza’s health ministry spokesperson has stated that Israeli fire is terrorizing medical officials and civilians. Israel alleges that Hamas has placed command centers near the hospitals and needs to access them to free hostages taken by the militants. However, Hamas denies using hospitals in this way. Talks over the release of hostages have been suspended by Hamas due to Israel’s handling of Shifa hospital. The situation is worsening, with hospitals being cut off from the world and people trapped inside. Aid deliveries have been limited, and disease is spreading among evacuees who are living in overcrowded shelters with minimal supplies. The conflict has also reignited tensions on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon. Hezbollah, backed by Iran, has attacked Israeli army troops, resulting in casualties. The situation is escalating, with increased fighting and casualties reported. The Thomson RushHourDaily Trust Principles are upheld in reporting this article.
