Gaza’s main hospital has become a ‘death zone’, says the WHO

A UN agency visits al-Shifa hospital after a raid by Israeli forces, who allege it is used by Hamas as a command center.

Dar Al-Shifa, the Gaza Strip’s largest hospital, has become a “death zone”, the World Health Organization has said, with a mass grave at the entrance and only 25 staff left to care for 291 seriously ill patients after orders from the Israeli army to evacuate the complex.

The WHO managed to access the medical center in Gaza City on Sunday after it was raided by Israeli forces earlier this week.

Israel alleged the militant group Hamas used al-Shifa as a command center, identifying it as a key target in its military operation despite international outcry.
