Women in Gaza bear the brunt of Israeli Occupation's aggression, enduring dire conditions.

Obstetrician Dr. Abeer Anab highlighted the plight, with over 60,000 pregnant women at risk due to limited healthcare access and unsafe delivery services.

Anab emphasized the most vulnerable groups, newborns and pregnant women, stressing their critical need for immediate preventive, therapeutic, and nutritional interventions to safeguard their lives.

With more than 180 deliveries daily in Gaza, 15 percent experiencing childbirth and pregnancy complications, the lack of available medical care worsens their plight, according to estimates from the United Nations Population Fund in the Palestinian territories.
