Ahmed Al-Louh, the Director of Operations, Emergencies, and Medical Services at Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza, affirmed that the hospital's medical teams are unable to conduct surgical operations for most patients due to the shortage of supplies and limited resources.

Expressing concern, he feared that the medical teams would be unable to provide healthcare services if the current situation of Israeli Occupation blockade and bombardment continues. He pointed out that Al-Ahli Hospital is the last functioning hospital in Gaza, and its health capacities and resources have become extremely limited.

This comes as Operation Aqsa Typhoon, launched by Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, has entered its 41st consecutive day in response to Israeli Occupation violations in the occupied Palestinian territories, which have been ongoing for decades.

In retaliation, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) has launched a campaign against the Gaza Strip, conducting a series of airstrikes in various areas.
