As 37 days have passed since the Hamas attack in Israel, today it is expected that a first group of about 30 or 40 Palestinian-Spanish people will leave the Gaza Strip for the crossing from Rafah to Egypt.
The Shifa hospital, the largest in the Gaza Strip and considered strategic for Israel, has been without electricity since this Sunday, which puts endangering the lives of those admitted, including premature babies, as fighting continues outside the facility, where incubators remained idle and critical supplies were running out. The latest balance is six premature babies and nine dead patients due to lack of electricity.
The Israeli military said it had placed 300 liters of fuel near Shifa overnight for an emergency generator powering premature baby incubators and had coordinated the delivery with hospital officials. But the military claimed that Hamas prevented the hospital from receiving the fuel.
Speaking to CNN, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “about 100 people” had been evacuated from Shifa and that Isreal had created safe corridors.
But Health Ministry Undersecretary Munir al-Boursh said Israeli snipers have been deployed around Shifashooting against any movement.
