The World Health Organisation has urged Israel to withdraw its evacuation order for hospitals in northern Gaza.
“There are patients who are there that cannot simply be moved, many there are on mechanical ventilators.
“There are also newborns on incubators, people in unstable conditions, and it’s very difficult to move them,” WHO spokesman, Tarik Jašarević said on Monday.
He said the task was “almost impossible.”
“We are calling on Israel to reconsider this order,” Jašarević said.
So far, four trucks carrying surgical and dressing materials as well as medicines for chronic illnesses have been brought into Gaza through the Rafah border crossing, the spokesman said.
“But that is not nearly enough.”
More trucks are ready on the Egyptian side, but so far there are no security guarantees that the supplies can be brought in.
