The ministry pointed out that the occupation military deliberately destroyed hospitals in northern Gaza and left 800,000 people living there without health services, as the wounded, sick, pregnant women and infants face the risk of death there, while the clinical occupancy rate in hospitals in southern Gaza reached 350 percent.

Medical teams are helpless in the face of hundreds of critical, dangerous and complex cases and severe burns due to the lack of the therapeutic, human and clinical capabilities required to deal with them, which leads to the loss of dozens of lives every day, it said.
