WHO loses communication with Gaza's Al Shifa hospital

Gaza, The Gulf Observer: The World Health Organization has said it has lost communication with its contacts in Al Shifa Hospital in northern Gaza, and expressed “grave concerns” for the safety of everyone trapped there by the fighting while calling for an immediate ceasefire.

The spokesperson for the Gaza Health Ministry said that operations in Al Shifa hospital complex, the largest in the Palestinian enclave, were suspended on Saturday after it ran out of fuel resulting in death of two of the 45 babies there.

WHO said it has “grave concerns for the safety of the health workers, hundreds of sick and wounded patients, including babies on life support and displaced people who remain inside the hospital”, and reiterated its call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
