WHO in a big shock over casualties of 685 healthcare workers in Gaza

Dr. Margaret Harris of the World Health Organization has decried the alarming toll on healthcare workers in Gaza, where 685 have lost their lives and over 900 have been injured since the onset of Israel’s conflict in October.

Dr. Harris emphasized the rapid escalation in casualties among medical personnel, stressing the fundamental principle that healthcare should be safeguarded in times of war as a basic human right.

The widespread destruction has compounded the challenges faced by those striving to deliver essential medical aid to a large population, she lamented.

In addition to grappling with the devastation, healthcare workers are enduring dire shortages of food and water, Harris noted, painting a grim picture of hunger pervading Gaza.

Echoing these concerns, the International Committee of the Red Cross has highlighted the inadequate access to safe water and medical assistance in the besieged enclave, where over 1.6 million people are now crowded into Rafah.

The stark reality of deprivation is underscored by reports of families receiving scant provisions every other day, as posted by the group on X.

A recent report supported by the UN has underscored the widespread food scarcity across Gaza, with Israel facing accusations of exacerbating the crisis and pushing the region towards famine.
