Israel-Gaza: World Health Organisation says Al-Shifa hospital is ‘nearly a cemetery’ – BBC News

Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital, which is tackling power cuts and a lack of fuel, is “nearly a cemetery”, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned.

Thousands could be trapped inside the city’s largest hospital due to nearby fighting, while officials have warned of rotting bodies piling up there.

Gaza City has seen an intensification of fighting between Israeli and Hamas forces in recent days, much of which has been taking place in streets close to the hospital.

Israel accuses Hamas of operating a command-and-control centre in tunnels underneath the hospital, which Hamas and the hospital deny.
