The Palestinian Red Crescent has reported that around 8,000 people have been evacuated from Al Amal Hospital and its headquarters in the city of Khan Younis, in the south of the Gaza Strip, due to bombing during recent operations by the Israeli Army soldiers in the area. The humanitarian organization has specified that there are forty displaced elderly people left in these infrastructures, about 80 patients and injured people, as well as a hundred administrative and medical workers.
The Palestinian Red Crescent also denounced that the Israeli security forces have arrested two of the main officials of said hospital: the general director, Haider al Qaddura, and the administrative director, Maher Atalá. Both had been “summoned” by “the occupation forces” and now their whereabouts are unknown.
The Israeli Army launched its offensive against the Palestinian enclave after the Hamas attacks, which left some 1,200 dead and nearly 240 kidnapped. The authorities of the enclave, controlled by the militia, have so far reported more than 27,500 Palestinian deaths due to the Israeli offensive, to which 373 have been killed in security force operations and attacks by settlers in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that “hundreds of displaced families” were leaving the hospital and the agency’s headquarters “after having been besieged for more than two weeks by the occupation forces, in the midst of an atmosphere of terror and panic due to the continuous bombings and shooting.”
The situation in the Gaza Strip is dire, with thousands of people being displaced from hospitals and other facilities due to the ongoing conflict between Israeli forces and Hamas. The Palestinian Red Crescent is working tirelessly to provide aid and support to those affected by the violence.
The arrest of the hospital officials is a troubling development, as it raises concerns about the safety and well-being of medical personnel in the region. The international community must take action to ensure the protection of medical facilities and staff in conflict zones.
The ongoing violence in the Gaza Strip has resulted in a devastating loss of life, with thousands of Palestinians killed and injured. The international community must work towards a peaceful resolution to the conflict and provide humanitarian aid to those affected by the violence.
