Over 107 patients, including 30 bedridden patients and 60 medical staff, are under siege in Al-Shifa Hospital with no access to water, electricity, or medication - Gaza’s Ministry of Health announced in a statement today, Saturday.

It added that the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) thwarted all attempts to evacuate these patients through international institutions.

The Ministry warned that the lives of the patients are in imminent danger and called for urgent action to save their lives.

Earlier today, Gaza’s Health said that within a 24-hour period, the IOF carried out eight separate attacks in the region, resulting in the deaths of 82 individuals and leaving 98 others injured.

With these latest casualties, the toll of victims from Israeli Occupation aggression in Gaza since October 7 has risen to 32,705 fatalities and 75,190 injuries.
