WHO says Gaza's Main Hospital no Longer Functioning

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the Al-Shifa, the main hospital in Gaza, "is not functioning as a hospital anymore".

Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry said at least 2,300 people were still inside Al-Shifa, in an update shared by the WHO.

Doctors there said they feared the remaining 36 newborn babies needing intensive care treatment may die. This is unless the hospital gets fuel to power the generators for incubators and to provide oxygen supply.

Israel has said that Hamas has a command centre under the hospital - which Hamas denies - but insisted it was not hitting the hospital during fighting.
