UN Rights chief calls Gaza hospital evacuation orders ‘death sentence’

Amman (AFP) – Israeli orders to evacuate hospitals in the north of the Gaza Strip are “a death sentence” given the state of the territory’s overall medical system, says the UN’s human rights chief Volker Turk. He adds that Israeli demands for Palestinian civilians to relocate to an “IDF-designated so-called ‘safe zone'” are alarming, casting doubt on the validity of such zones when “established unilaterally”.
