Medical sources said that residents of the northern Gaza Strip are now without any health services as a result of the Kamal Adwan Hospital generator stopping work.

On February 18, the Ministry of Health in Gaza and the World Health Organization announced that the second largest hospital in the Strip, Nasser Hospital in the city of Khan Yunis, in the southern Strip, had been out of service.

The World Health Organization reported last December that it had recorded about 500 attacks on health care facilities in Gaza since October 7, when Hamas launched an unprecedented attack on Israel.

During the war on Gaza, Israel put 31 hospitals out of service by bombing, destroying, and depriving them of medical supplies and fuel. It also partially targeted 152 health institutions, according to the government media office in the Strip.

According to the spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qudra, two infants died in Kamal Adwan Hospital on Wednesday due to dehydration and malnutrition.

Al-Qudra warned that the infant mortality rate is likely to rise, adding that "drought and malnutrition will kill thousands of children and pregnant women in the Gaza Strip."
