Gaza has turned into a 'death trap': 'Unliveable, inhumane to deprive an entire population of water'


Egypt’s state-run media say babies evacuated from Gaza’s embattled Shifa Hospital have arrived in Egypt. The Palestinian Red Crescent rescue service said it was transporting 28 premature babies from a hospital in southern Gaza to another across the border in Egypt on Monday. Egypt’s Al-Qahera satellite channel broadcast images of the babies inside Egyptian ambulances, without specifying how many had arrived. Over the weekend, 31 babies were evacuated from Shifa. For more on the harrowing plight of the fleeing civilians in war-torn Gaza, FRANCE 24's Rochelle FERGUSON BOUYAHI is joined by Laila Baker, Regional Director for Arab States in UNFPA, the UN agency for sexual and reproductive health.

  • 'Race against time' for IDF to justify Al-Shifa raid or 'risk compromising entire' Gaza operation

    Israeli troops carried out building-by-building searches at Gaza's main hospital on Friday, after a communications blackout in the Palestinian territory compounded fears for civilians trapped inside the facility. Al-Shifa hospital has become a focal point for Israeli operations in northern Gaza since soldiers raided the complex on Wednesday, hunting for a command centre they say militant group Hamas operates at the site. Hamas and hospital managers deny that charge, and there has been international concern about thousands of people -- including wounded patients and premature babies -- believed to be inside. As Israeli forces search Gaza hospital, FRANCE 24's Will Hilderbrandt is joined by Dr Rob Geist Pinfold, Lecturer in Peace and Security in the School of Government and International Affairs at Durham University.

  • 'Death warrant': Thousands trapped in war-hit Gaza hospital

    Thousands of displaced Palestinians looked to Gaza's largest hospital, Al-Shifa, as a safe haven, but with Israeli strikes intensifying and the fighting reaching the gates of the compound, there seems nowhere for them to escape. Doctors without Borders (MSF) denounced the intense battles around the facility as the "death warrant of civilians currently trapped in Al-Shifa Hospital signed by the Israeli military". "We cannot leave. If I am not here or the other surgeon, who will take care of the patients?" said MSF doctor Mohammed Obeid.
