The war in Gaza has caused an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, leaving the Strip's residents groaning under bombardment at risk of famine and the spread of disease as the medical system collapses.

After the interruption of a number of basic vaccinations in the Gaza Strip, thousands of children are left without protection from infectious diseases.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said that the humanitarian system in the Gaza Strip is on the verge of collapse and I call for the rapid arrival of humanitarian aid without obstacles, according to Cairo News Channel in its breaking news.

The Israeli war on the Gaza Strip has continued since the seventh of last October, claiming thousands of martyrs and tens of thousands of injuries, in addition to the destruction of buildings and roads.

The health system in the Gaza Strip is suffering from a very difficult situation, starting with the almost collapsed ambulance system, as the Israeli occupation bombed about 108 ambulances, and 11 hospitals out of 36 are partially operating.

The occupation forces had previously stormed most of the hospitals in Gaza and its north, abused medical staff, the displaced, the sick and the injured, and arrested 34 medical staff.
