Medical crisis in Gaza hospitals at ‘unimaginable’ level, aid agencies say

The medical situation in Gaza's hospitals has deteriorated to an "unimaginable" crisis, with untreated open wounds and severe shortages of essential medical supplies reported. A joint emergency medical team, comprising three aid groups, witnessed these dire conditions during a two-week mission at the European hospital near Khan Younis.

Persistent fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in the southern city has exacerbated the healthcare crisis. Meanwhile, Israel's decision to cease cooperation with the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Gaza, accusing it of fueling conflict, further complicates the humanitarian situation.

Israel's move to distance itself from UNRWA aligns with the longstanding goals of its political right wing. The emergency medical team highlighted the challenges faced by healthcare workers in Khan Younis, including evacuations and restricted access to medical facilities.

Israeli-imposed restrictions have led to critical shortages of medical supplies, exacerbating the crisis. Vital supplies remain inaccessible due to aid restrictions, contributing to a dire humanitarian situation described by senior UN officials as approaching a "man-made famine."

Amid escalating tensions and dwindling resources, urgent international action is needed to address the healthcare crisis in Gaza and ensure access to essential medical supplies for vulnerable populations.
