At least 3,000 people have been killed and 12,500 people have been injured in the Gaza Strip since last Saturday
A hospital in Gaza was shut down on Tuesday after being severely damaged following Israeli airstrikes targeting neighboring hospital buildings, according to a statement by Dr. Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza as reported by CNN.
“Severe damage to Al Karama Hospital in Gaza led to it being put out of service as a result of Israeli occupation forces’ airstrikes targeting neighboring buildings and their collapse,” according to the statement.
The ministry appealed to all petrol station owners and anyone with diesel fuel to contact them to secure fuel for critical medical services, the statement added.
Fuel stocks in all Gaza hospitals are on the brink, with only one day’s worth of supplies, a United Nations aid agency said earlier on Tuesday. Failure of backup generators would endanger the lives of thousands of patients, he added.
