Gaza hospital generators will run out of fuel in 48 hours: Health Ministry | Israeli-Palestinian conflict News


The health system has reached its worst level in history, a spokesperson said, calling for more aid to the enclave.

The Gaza Strip’s Health Ministry warned that hospital power generators would stop working in the next 48 hours due to a fuel shortage, amid intensifying Israeli air raids on the besieged enclave .

Ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qudra said in a brief statement on Telegram on Tuesday that the flow of humanitarian aid to Gaza is “slow and cannot change the reality” on the ground.

“The health system has reached the worst stage in its history,” he added.

On Monday, the ministry said 32 health centers were out of service after Israel cut off access to essential supplies, including fuel, as it carried out a bombing campaign that destroyed entire neighborhoods and brought conditions humanitarians at a breaking point.

He added that the immediate needs of hospitals must be prioritized in terms of aid distribution, urging the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross to push for the delivery of fuel and units of blood to the enclave.

The Indonesian hospital, located in the Beit Lahia region of northern Gaza, was closed because it could no longer provide vital facilities after a power outage on Monday.

Footage verified by Al Jazeera showed the facility in darkness. Videos showed hospital medical teams receiving patients being transported by paramedics using handheld flashlights. It was later reported that power had been restored, but it was unclear how long that would last.

I hope for more help

Meanwhile, a convoy of humanitarian aid trucks delivered water, food and medicine to the Gaza Strip on Monday, the third since limited aid began arriving on Saturday.

The UN says fuel has not been included and that supplies will run out within two days.

Al Jazeera’s Hani Abu Isheba, reporting from Khan Younis in southern Gaza, said residents hoped more aid trucks would be allowed into the besieged enclave.

He added that Palestinians living in this narrow strip of land desperately wanted the bombing to stop.

Israel began its intense air attacks on Gaza after an attack by Hamas, the group that rules the enclave, in southern Israel on October 7 that killed more than 1,400 people, mostly civilians.

More than 5,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks, according to Gaza’s health ministry, which says about 40 percent of the victims are children.
