The Gaza Ministry of Health has confirmed that four hospitals in the Gaza Strip are no longer operational, having been directly targeted in Israeli attacks.

As reported by Bernama, citing the Jordanian news agency Petra, these four hospitals are Beit Hanoun, Al-Durra, Al-Karama and the International Al-Oyoun Hospital.

“These hospitals are operating at a capacity of 150%, with some patients forced to sleep on the floors and in corridors.

There is no stock of medication, medical supplies and fuel at these hospitals,” stated the ministry in a statement.

Shortages of Medical Supplies and Fuel at Hospitals

The ministry underscores that these hospitals are critically short of vital medical supplies and fuel, resulting in delays in delivering medical essentials to hospitals in the Gaza Strip and, regrettably, leading to a rise in casualties among injured patients.

Urgent Call for Retired Healthcare Personnel to Resume Duty

Furthermore, retired healthcare personnel are called upon to return to their positions in healthcare institutions as soon as possible, as reported by Anadolu.

Following this, they appeal to the international community and humanitarian organizations to expedite the delivery of emergency medical supplies to hospitals in the Gaza Strip.

Appeal for Authorities to Safeguard Medical Teams

The ministry also appeals to relevant authorities to provide protection to medical teams, ambulances, and shelter facilities for residents who have been compelled to abandon their homes due to the Israeli incursions.

The ongoing Zionist regime’s aerial assaults in the Gaza Strip since 7 October have resulted in over 3,785 Palestinian civilian fatalities, with more than 12,000 individuals sustaining injuries.
