In a press statement coinciding with the 150th day of the ongoing Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip, Qidra revealed that the IOF has destroyed 155 health facilities, closed 32 hospitals, and shut down 53 health centers. Additionally, they targeted 126 ambulances, rendering them out of service, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Qidra emphasized that the health situation is catastrophic, defying description, and continues to deteriorate due to the lack of essential medical supplies. The deliberate humanitarian and health catastrophe created by the IOF has contributed to the spread of infectious diseases and epidemics. The MoH has documented nearly one million cases of infectious diseases, yet the necessary medical resources are insufficient.

Residents of northern Gaza are struggling for survival, facing famine that surpasses global levels due to water scarcity, food shortages, and inadequate access to medical aid. The crisis has already claimed the lives of dozens of children, women, and elderly individuals.

Qidra urgently called upon the UN to implement international humanitarian law to protect civilians, institutions, and health personnel.
