The Israeli occupation army on Friday night warned that Al-Awdeh Hospital located in Jabaliya will be bombed, sending a warning notice for it to be evacuated.

According to the Palestine News and Information Agency (Wafa) correspondents in Gaza, the evacuation process is underway for patients and medical staff, and all patients will be transferred to the Indonesia Hospital.

The threats and warnings take place under catastrophic health and humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip. The entire healthcare system is on the verge of collapse due to the power outage and the occupation’s refusal to allow electricity, water and fuel into Gaza since the beginning of the attack seven days ago. There are thousands of wounded individuals crowding the corridors in hospitals and health centres, which are constantly receiving new victims of the occupation’s attacks.

Earlier on Friday, dozens of Gazan residents were killed, and about 200 were wounded in the Israeli occupation forces’ newest massacre committed against residents of Gaza City. Residents were forced to flee their homes and head to the southern parts of Gaza after the occupation demanded the evacuation of northern Gaza.

According to local sources, the occupation forces targeted three convoys of Palestinians in separate locations on the Salah Al-Din and Al-Rasheed roads as they tried to reach areas south of Wadi Gaza. The attack killed 70 residents, mostly children and women, wounding 200 others.
