Northern Gaza Strip faces ‘real humanitarian catastrophe’

TEHRAN, IRNA – Director general of the government media office in Gaza Ismail al-Thawabta has emphasized Gaza Strip faces a “real humanitarian catastrophe” by closing more hospitals and not sending any aid to the north of the Enclave.

According to the Palestinian Sama news agency on Saturday, al-Thawabta described idle oxygen plants as a death penalty for patients in need of oxygen capsules.

He added that the occupying Israeli regime has closed 32 out of 35 hospitals in the Gaza Strip

He further noted that no aid has been sent to the northern Gaza Strip, adding, “That is why we call on the countries of the world to urgently dispatch field and mobile hospitals, especially to the northern Gaza Strip”.

Meanwhile, United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) spokesperson Tess Ingram termed the situation of children in the Gaza Strip as "painful and tragic" and warned of the long-term consequences of Israeli aggression on the physical and mental health of children in the area.

Israel waged the bloody war on Gaza on October 7 after Hamas launched Operation al-Aqsa Storm in the occupied territories in retaliation for the Tel Aviv regime’s incessant crimes against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Since the start of the aggression, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 33,686 people in Gaza, mostly women and children, according to the health ministry in the territory.

The campaign has devastated large swathes of Gaza, destroyed hospitals, and displaced half of its population of 2.4 million.

Israel has also imposed a “complete siege” on the coastal sliver, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
