The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Kamal Adwan Hospital, the last operating hospital in the northern Gaza Strip, was out of service, as a result of the electricity generator stopping after it ran out of fuel.

The Ministry said - in a statement - that the residents of the northern Gaza Strip are now without any health services after this hospital went out of service, and thus the population loses dialysis, intensive care, nursery, internal medicine, cardiology, general surgery, and children’s overnight and emergency services.

She explained that "Kamal Adwan Hospital services have completely stopped as a result of the lack of fuel and the occupation's stubbornness in not reaching hospitals in northern Gaza."

The Ministry's spokesman also said - in a statement to Al Jazeera - that the health system in northern Gaza has become "completely incapable" after the Kamal Adwan Hospital stopped.

Previous warning

Earlier Wednesday, the hospital director, Hossam Abu Safiya, warned that the medical facility “will be out of service later today” due to running out of fuel as a result of the devastating Israeli war on the Strip about 5 months ago.

He also announced that "four children died during the past few days in the hospital due to malnutrition and dehydration."

It is noteworthy that Israel, during its ongoing war on the Gaza Strip for the 146th day in a row, put 31 hospitals out of service by bombing, destroying, and depriving them of medical supplies and fuel out of a total of 36, and also partially targeted 152 health institutions, according to the government media office.

Since last October 7, it has been waging a devastating war on Gaza that, as of Wednesday, left 29,954 martyrs and 70,325 injured, most of them children and women, in addition to thousands missing under the rubble, according to the Palestinian authorities.
