20 Patients, Including 6 Babies, Die at Gaza Hospital amid Power Outage


GAZA – The death toll from a power outage at the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City has risen to 15, including six premature babies, the hospital director said Monday.

“Six premature babies and nine injured people at the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) died today as a result of the power outage,” Mohamed Abu Slima told Anadolu.

“They all died as a result of Israel’s refusal to allow fuel for the hospital,” Abu Slima said. “There are still 33 premature babies at the hospital.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed Sunday that his government had offered fuel to the hospital, but the delivery was blocked by Hamas.

Israel has killed more than 11,100 Palestinians in relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip since October 7 when Hamas launched a cross-border attack. Israel has put its death toll at nearly 1,200, after revising it downwards. -AA
