KHAN YUNIS - Three patients warded in the intensive care unit (ICU) at the Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, southern Gaza, died this morning due to a disruption in oxygen supply caused by a power outage amid the continuing Israeli siege of the hospital, according to medical sources.

The Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) reported distressing conditions within a hospital where two women were compelled to endure childbirth in inhumane circumstances, lacking essential amenities such as electricity, water, food, and heating.

The sources revealed that the imminent depletion of fuel and the Israeli blockade pose a threat to the lives of patients and vulnerable children at the hospital complex.

The hospital administration blamed the Israeli occupation for the well-being of patients and medical teams, urging all international institutions to swiftly intervene and rescue those in the medical complex.

Earlier on Thursday, Israeli occupation forces coerced the administration of Nasser Medical Complex into relocating 95 healthcare professionals, 11 families, 191 patients, and 165 accompanying displaced individuals to the old Nasser Building, subjecting them to harsh and frightening conditions.

The Israeli attacks in Gaza has killed more than 28,000 people and caused mass destruction and shortages of necessities. - BERNAMA
