Raed al-Nims, the media officer for the Palestinian Red Crescent, said that "1.4 million people have been displaced from their homes due to the Israeli aggression, which destroyed their properties and homes," which means "70% of Gaza's population have become homeless and displaced."

He mentioned that "160 schools" affiliated with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) have been targeted and used as shelters for thousands of displaced people.

The Israeli airstrikes have resulted in "19 schools going out of service, and those within them, the displaced people, have worsened the crisis," as reported by al-Nims.

He also pointed out that 12 hospitals and 32 sub-health centers have gone out of service, "either due to Israeli strikes on health facilities or due to the depletion of fuel and the necessities for operating these hospitals." He described the current situation in Gaza as "catastrophic."
