As Israel’s genocide in the Gaza Strip entered its 26th day on Wednesday, the death toll climbed to over 8,796 victims, including 3,648 children and 2,290 women.
The Palestinian health authorities confirmed that an additional 22,219 Palestinians have been wounded, while 2,030 people are still under the rubble.
It asserted that 16 hospitals have become out of service, and 130 health personnel have also been killed in the attacks.
The Israeli forces also committed 950 massacres since the start of the aggression, resulting in the killing of hundreds of civilians, the majority of whom were displaced from their homes.
The health ministry also pointed out that Al-Shifa Hospital and the Indonesia Hospital would stop working within the coming hours if they were not provided with their fuel needs.
“We send an urgent distress call to our brothers from the oil-producing countries to intervene urgently to supply Al-Shifa Medical Complex and the Indonesian Hospital with fuel to save the lives of wounded and sick citizens,” the ministry said in a statement today.
It also called for urgently providing these hospitals with their fuel needs to “save the lives of 42 children under life support in incubators, 62 wounded person and patients connected to ventilators, and 650 patients with kidney failure, and hundreds of people in operating rooms, in addition to other patients and injured people.”
The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip constitutes a blatant violation of international humanitarian and human rights law as it exposes civilians’ lives to extreme danger, which requires an immediate international intervention.
The international community must force the Israeli occupation forces to abide by international human rights and humanitarian laws, mainly protecting the rights and lives of civilians, prohibiting their targeting and preserving their safety, and holding the Israeli leaders accountable for committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip.
