Gaza’s hospitals are still finding themselves in a dire predicament as they grapple with a critical shortage of medical supplies. A key medical facility in northern Gaza faces an additional challenge as its main generator has gone offline. 

Meanwhile, Israeli strikes continue to target the vicinity of Gaza City’s al-Quds Hospital, forcing the Israeli military to urge civilians to relocate to safer areas.

The escalating crisis in Gaza raises serious questions about the well-being of the population and the humanitarian consequences of the ongoing conflict. The strikes carried out by Israel were on the densely populated Jabalia refugee camp. The Civil Defense in the Hamas-run enclave called it a “second massacre.

The United Nations is sounding the alarm, raising serious concerns that these strikes could constitute disproportionate attacks that could amount to war crimes. 

Meanwhile in Washington, President Joe Biden expressed support for a humanitarian pause to facilitate the release of more hostages.
