The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced the reopening of the dialysis department at Shifa Hospital in Gaza, in light of the continued absence of aid and fuel in various areas of the Gaza Strip.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza called on kidney patients to go to Shifa Hospital for treatment, after the dialysis department was restarted with "exceptional efforts."

This came after Palestinian youth launched a voluntary initiative to clean the hospital west of Gaza City and restart it at a minimum.

Mahmoud Hammad, director general of administrative affairs at the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said that there was significant destruction in all the facilities of the Shifa complex, saying, "There is no facility without destruction of equipment and equipment."

Photographs obtained by Al Jazeera show the extent of the destruction caused by the occupying forces in and around the hospital.

Last Friday, the Israeli occupation army withdrew from the Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City, about 10 days after it stormed and destroyed parts of it.

On the other hand, scenes monitored by journalist Ismail al-Ghoul revealed the massive destruction in and around the Gaza port. The port was a concentration area for the Israeli army during the ground incursion into the Gaza Strip, and the journalist monitored armored vehicles and fortifications of the Israeli forces in the vicinity of the port.

For his part, journalist Anas Al-Sharif monitored the water crisis in the Gaza Strip, and its impact on the lives of civilians trapped in the northern Gaza Strip.

Gaza Mayor Yahya al-Sarraj told Al Jazeera that more than 700,<> citizens in Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip are in dire need of water, food and fuel, noting that the priority is to distribute water supplies to homes.

Al-Sarraj added that they are discovering day after day the scale of the massive destruction resulting from the targeting of historical and archaeological buildings in the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian volunteers face great difficulties in delivering humanitarian aid to displaced people in the south of the Strip and those trapped in the north. Despite limited resources, and with almost individual efforts, volunteers are seeking to reach the largest number of people in need, in light of bad weather, but those affected say that this aid does not meet the minimum needs of them, especially with regard to food and medicine.

Al Jazeera has obtained footage showing the suffering of Palestinians in Jabalya camp, north of Gaza. The footage shows a school to shelter displaced people who came from different areas of Gaza City after the Israeli ground incursion into the northern area late last month.

With the rains, the suffering of displaced people in UNRWA schools, which have been turned into shelters, is compounded, with water and electricity cuts, and a lack of aid to the northern regions.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on his X account that the resumption of military operations in Gaza means the resumption of losses, suffering and severe shortages of supplies.

Ghebreyesus expressed support for the continuation of the truce in Gaza, noting that the income in terms of medical supplies, fuel and food fell far short of the needs of the people of the Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Strip is living under a 4-day humanitarian truce reached after Qatari mediation in partnership with Egypt and the United States, and the truce began last Friday, and it was announced on Monday that it would be extended for two more days.
