Warnings that Gaza hospitals will turn into mass graves due to the accumulation of martyrs and the lack of capabilities (Anatolia)

On Friday morning, the Israeli occupation forces renewed their bombing of various areas of the Gaza Strip, after committing a horrific massacre yesterday that claimed the lives of more than 112 martyrs and injured about 760 others who were waiting to receive aid in the north of the besieged Strip.

Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that 4 Palestinians were martyred and a number of others were injured as a result of the bombing of a house for the Al-Qrenawi family in the Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, while Al-Aqsa satellite channel said that Israeli occupation artillery bombed various areas in the south of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian medical sources reported that the child Ahmed Hijazi was martyred due to malnutrition and starvation in the northern Gaza Strip.

Yesterday, Thursday, the Ministry of Health in Gaza announced the death of 13 children due to famine and malnutrition in the northern Gaza Strip.

For his part, the director of Kamal Adwan Hospital, Dr. Hossam Abu Safia, told Al Jazeera that a number of children were martyred due to a lack of food, medicines and medical equipment.

He added that Gaza's hospitals were operating with weak and very limited capabilities, and this had caused an increase in the number of martyrs. He warned that Gaza's hospitals would turn into mass graves due to overcrowding and lack of capabilities.

At the same time, violent clashes are taking place between the Palestinian resistance and the occupation forces west and east of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Warnings of the invasion of Rafah

On the other hand, the European Union expressed - on Thursday - serious concern about the possible Israeli operation in the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

The European Union's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Lotte Knudsen, said in a speech in Geneva, Switzerland, that the bloc is very concerned about the imminent ground operation in Rafah.

For its part, Finland warned that a possible Israeli attack on the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip would exacerbate the disastrous situation.

Fox, a spokeswoman for the Nordic and Baltic countries in Geneva, Switzerland, also called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Recently, the Israeli war cabinet (cabinet) discussed a plan to evacuate the Palestinians from Rafah as part of Tel Aviv’s intention to invade it, despite international warnings of the danger that this would pose to the city, which was crowded with displaced people who took refuge there as the last refuge in the southern Gaza Strip on the border with Egypt.

This comes as Israel has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, leaving tens of thousands of civilian victims, most of them children and women, in addition to an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe and massive destruction of infrastructure, which led to Tel Aviv appearing before the International Court of Justice on charges of Genocide.
