Majority of casualties resulting from the Israeli attack on the hospital are women and children. They also noted that the death toll is likely to rise as many victims are yet to be identified. Health officials are urging a substantial attendance at the funerals scheduled for today.
Disturbingly, in Gaza, at least five hospitals have received evacuation notices from Israel. According to international law, hospitals are designated as safe zones and protected from attacks. In Gaza, however, this foundational principle is not upheld.
The question arises: How are hospitals supposed to carry out evacuations, and where will the patients, including those in critical condition, be relocated?
The motivations behind Israel’s evacuation warnings remain unclear to the people of Gaza and the World.
