Gaza Hospital Raided: WHO Declares Non-functioning

WHO says Gaza hospital raided by IDF not functional

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a statement condemning the recent raid on a hospital in Gaza by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), stating that the attack has severely impacted the hospital’s ability to function effectively.

The raid, which took place last week, resulted in significant damage to the hospital’s infrastructure and medical equipment. According to local reports, several patients and medical staff were injured in the attack.

Dr. Ahmed Al-Mandhari, the WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, called the raid a blatant violation of international humanitarian law and urged all parties involved to respect the sanctity of medical facilities and ensure the safety of patients and medical personnel.

The hospital, which was already struggling to cope with the demands placed on it by the ongoing conflict in Gaza, is now facing even greater challenges in providing essential medical care to those in need. The WHO has called for immediate action to repair the damage caused by the raid and ensure that the hospital can resume its operations as soon as possible.

As the situation in Gaza continues to deteriorate, it is vital that medical facilities are able to operate without fear of attack. The WHO is urging all parties to the conflict to respect the neutrality of hospitals and ensure that they are able to provide care to all those in need, regardless of their political or military affiliations.
