Critical situation in Gaza hospitals, UN warns

Since the bombing began on October 7, 24 health facilities have been damaged in the enclave, including six hospitals, the organization said in a statement.

On the subject, he stressed that three of the medical centers located in the northern area should be evacuated.

“Until Saturday afternoon, almost 600,000 internally displaced people were housed in central and southern Gaza, in extremely dire conditions. Since then, that number has increased significantly,” he warned.

OCHA stated that Israel partially restored the water supply to the south of the territory the previous day.

Concerns about dehydration and fluid-borne diseases are high due to the collapse of water and sanitation services, including the closing in the last hours of the last desalination plant operating in Gaza, he warned.

The institution criticized Israel’s bombardment against residential buildings in densely populated areas, as well as the rockets launched by Palestinian militias against the neighboring country.

OCHA cited data from the Gaza Ministry of Public Works, which announced the destruction of 7,000 houses and that another 4,887 were damaged or left uninhabitable in the territory.

He also emphasized that on October 13, 144 educational facilities were hit by airstrikes, including 20 schools of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

Eleven mosques were attacked and destroyed, and seven churches and mosques were damaged, he added.

Likewise, he criticized the bombing against water and sanitation facilities, as well as the damage to wells, pumping stations, a reservoir and a desalination plant that supplies more than 1.1 million people.
