Ratiba Natsheh, a member of the Palestinian National and Civil Society Action Committee, confirmed that the miscarriage rate among pregnant women in Gaza has risen to 10 cases per day as a result of their exposure to severe stress as the state of displacement continues from one place to another in addition to the shortage of food, medical supplies and medicines.

Al-Natsheh said in media statements, "The human suffering to which pregnant women are exposed is beyond description while they are in tents crowded with displaced persons, with a lack of resources, a lack of personal hygiene methods, and a lack of water, which exposes them to serious complications, especially after childbirth."

She pointed out that the medical teams in Gaza are exhausted after 9 months of non-stop work with the continued aggression against the Strip, which puts the lives of pregnant women and newborns at risk due to most hospitals being out of service and the difficulty of receiving medical services as devices and equipment stop due to the lack of fuel necessary to operate them.

She explained that famine has reached unprecedented levels in northern Gaza, with the worsening humanitarian conditions and the shortage of food and potable water, with the continued bombing targeting all areas in the Strip.
