The Ministry of Health in Gaza, which is under the administration of Hamas, has released a statement on Telegram, asserting that the healthcare system in the Gaza Strip has “completely crumbled.”

“We confirm that 12 hospitals and 32 health centers are out of service, and we fear that more will be out of service in the coming hours due to targeting and running out of fuel,” the statement said.

It also warned that “hospital doors remaining open does not mean that they are providing service to the flood of wounded people”.

The statement also included an urgent appeal to the international community, requesting fuel support for hospitals, the dispatch of specialized medical teams to aid those injured in the Israeli conflict, and a call for retired professionals and volunteers from various fields to immediately join hospital efforts.

As we’ve been covering, Juliette Touma, the Director of Communications for UNRWA, has issued a warning that the humanitarian organization, responsible for the largest aid operation in Gaza, will be forced to cease its operations tomorrow due to the lack of fuel.

She noted that UNRWA operates 150 shelters, many of which were previously used as schools.

“Just in those shelters we have 600,000 people who have come seeking shelter. They need food, they need water, they need sanitation services. They need mattresses, they need protection.”

She said if this work stops, people in Gaza will be “even more desperate.”
