The Palestinian Health Ministry has warned that there is no food or water available at the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City due to a siege imposed by Israeli occupation forces for the second day.

The ministry stated today that patients and medical staff detained at the Al-Shifa medical complex continue their fast for the second consecutive day without being able to break their fast, due to the lack of water and food resulting from the siege by the occupation forces.

The ministry appealed to all United Nations institutions to stop the occupation's crimes against patients, the wounded, and medical staff inside the hospital.

Yesterday, dozens of Palestinians were martyred and injured due to the occupation's bombing of the Al-Shifa complex, which houses more than 30,000 medical staff, displaced people, wounded, and patients. Meanwhile, the occupation forces, which stormed the complex, arrested dozens.
