World Health: 10 out of 36 hospitals in Gaza are partially operational

The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, renewed his demand to stop the Israeli occupation attacks on hospitals in Gaza, warning of the consequences of the collapse of the health system in the besieged Strip.

Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned Thursday of the consequences of the collapse of the health system in the besieged Gaza Strip, noting that only 10 hospitals out of 36 are partially functioning.

“With only 10 hospitals out of 36 partially functioning, the health system in Gaza is barely surviving,” Ghebreyesus wrote in a post on the X platform.

He pointed out that the Palestinian Red Crescent Society announced on Tuesday that Al-Amal Hospital in the city of Khan Yunis (south) had stopped working, as a result of the ongoing occupation army attacks on “the facility and its environs.”

The organization's director renewed his demand for an immediate halt to attacks on hospitals in Gaza, and called for the protection of health personnel, patients, and civilians.

On Tuesday, the association announced that Al-Amal Hospital would be out of service “completely,” after the Israeli occupation army forced medical teams to evacuate the hospital and closed its entrances with dirt barriers.

On Sunday, Israeli forces stormed Al-Amal Hospital amid heavy gunfire and carried out bulldozing operations in its vicinity, according to a statement by the Palestinian Red Crescent.

Since the start of its war on Gaza on October 7, the Israeli occupation forces have targeted medical facilities and hospitals in various areas of the Strip with systematic and continuous attacks, causing the destruction of the health system, a humanitarian catastrophe, and the deterioration of the infrastructure.

The war on Gaza left tens of thousands of civilian victims, most of them children and women, and a famine that claimed the lives of children and the elderly, according to Palestinian and UN data, which led to Israel being brought before the International Court of Justice on charges of committing “genocide.”
