Medical supplies short and aid frozen as Israel-Hamas battle raged

Medical supplies short and aid frozen as Israel-Hamas battle raged. Four days after Hamas’s historic attack on Israel and the Israeli army’s bombing of the region, Gaza’s hospitals have been left without medical supplies, which has resulted in a severe humanitarian crisis in the region.

It appears that a humanitarian corridor is required, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization, “to ensure the entry of urgent medical aid” into Gaza’s hospitals.

In order to prevent the entry of food and fuel into Gaza, Israel declared a “total blockade”. It is a war crime according to UN regulations for a siege like this to be carried out with the aim of starving a population.

There have been 770 Palestinians and more than 900 Israelis killed in Gaza and Israel in the past few days.

As a result of Israeli settlers taking control of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in recent days and a record number of Palestinians being killed by Israel in recent months, Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel on Saturday.

After evacuating or removing all the remaining people from the neighbourhoods near the Gaza boundary, Israel claims to have fixed the barrier’s holes. 

Physical barriers encircling Gaza serve the purpose of preventing Palestinians from Gaza from entering Israel as a result of the physical barriers.

From Gaza, tanks are constantly firing at each other. It is not uncommon for the jets to make loud noises from time to time.

When Zeinab, a nurse employed by Gaza’s Shifa Hospital, found out that her husband, a doctor, had been killed by ferocious Israeli airstrikes, she immediately raced out of the building in a state of panic.

She screamed, “My husband has been martyred,” as she held her head in her hands. “While I was working in the hospital, he was martyred while I was there. It was while I was working with the injured that I found out that my husband had been martyred.”
