Conditions in Gaza
Israeli forces and equipment are amassing around Gaza’s borders. The situation of people in Gaza is deteriorating, and relief organizations have expressed concerns. The number of casualties on both sides is increasing. The death toll in Gaza has reached 1,000, while in Israel, it has exceeded 1,200.
Israeli airstrikes are ongoing, and there is a shortage of food. The only source of fuel, natural gas, is running out. After the deadly Hamas attack on southern Israel, the Defense Minister of the country ordered a complete lockdown of Gaza, cutting off water, electricity, and gas.
Fearful Palestinian Citizens
Palestinian citizens are scared and fatigued, taking shelter in hospitals and schools due to the fear of Israeli airstrikes. Approximately 2.3 million people reside in Gaza, and many of them are now homeless. A British-Palestinian surgeon working in a Gaza hospital has stated that due to the influx of patients, hospitals have been converted into refugee camps. Those who are frightened of the aerial strikes are staying in a safe environment within the hospital. More and more injured individuals are being transported to hospitals, and their numbers are increasing. According to the surgeon, the hospital where they work has 2,200 to 2,500 beds, but so far, it has received 4,500 injured patients.
