The director of a hospital in northern Gaza has warned that the medical center is completely surrounded by tanks, making it impossible to leave.
Mustafa al-Kahlout, who heads Al Nasr hospital and Al Rantisi pediatric hospital, urged for an evacuation of the doctors and patients inside as fighting intensifies.
“We are completely surrounded, there are tanks outside the hospital, and we cannot leave,” al-Kahlout told CNN.
The hospital complex is close to the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood and Al Shati refugee camp, where ground fighting was reported by the IDF and Hamas separately.
“We do not have electricity, no oxygen for the patients, we do not have medicine and water,” he said.
“We do not know our fate, but there has been no contact from the Red Cross or any international organizations,” al-Kahlout added.
