The World Health Organization announced that its personnel visited Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, and are preparing to evacuate patients and staff members who remain within 24 to 72 hours.

According to the WHO statement, there are still 25 staff members and 291 patients at the site – and actions are being to coordinate their transfer to Nasser Medical Complex and European Gaza Hospital in the south of Gaza.

"These hospitals are already working beyond capacity, and new referrals from Al-Shifa Hospital will further strain overburdened health staff and resources," the WHO said.

The WHO also noted that it is deeply concerned about the safety and health needs of patients, health workers and internally displaced people sheltering at the few remaining partially functional hospitals in the north, which are facing risk of closure due lack of fuel, water, medical supplies, food, and the intense hostilities.

The WHO reiterates its plea for collective efforts to bring an end to the hostilities and humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza.
