Civilians have flooded hospitals in Gaza following the resumption of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, further overwhelming the medical infrastructure in the war-torn territory.
Most of the victims of the bombardments in Gaza since the truce ended on Friday are women and children, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza.
Israel says its military strikes are targeting Hamas, not civilians.
"Medical teams have been dealing with large numbers of wounded since the end of the humanitarian pause yesterday morning, with the continued bombing of civilians," Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesman for the health ministry, told CNN. "The wounded are lying on the floor in emergency departments and in front of operating rooms as a result of the accumulation of cases."
Conditions are also worsening in southern Gaza. Israel has recently started carrying out strikes there after previously concentrating military activity in the enclave's north.
“Hospitals in the southern regions of the Gaza Strip have become unable to provide medical services. The emergency department is unable to receive more casualties,” the director of the European Hospital in Khan Younis, Dr. Youssef Al-Akkad said in a statement.
