Al-Qudra added in a press conference on Wednesday, “The Israeli occupation committed 27 massacres during the past hours, claiming the lives of 241 martyrs.”

Al-Qudra stated that the Ministry of Health received 2,550 reports of missing persons, including 1,350 children still under the rubble since the start of the aggression.
He continued: “Hospitals are currently working on secondary generators to operate intensive care units, operating rooms, and emergency departments only, and the rest of the hospitals are without electricity.”
He added: “The Israeli occupation increases the threat to hospitals and reiterates its request to evacuate Al-Rantisi Specialized Hospital for Children, which puts the lives of the sick and wounded and thousands of displaced people at risk of death.”
Al-Qudra called on the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross to “be present inside the hospitals to stop the Israeli threats, protect the health system, and allow their crews to carry out their humanitarian tasks.”
He called for “immediate action to provide a safe humanitarian corridor for the entry of medical supplies, fuel, and medical personnel, and for the exit of thousands of wounded.”
