Gaza hospital ‘functioning at 300% of 100% capacity’ says doctor

Khan Yunis (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – Doctors at the Nasser Hospital say they are “are functioning at 300% of our 100% capacity”, amid shortages of medical supplies and beds for the wounded in Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip. Fighting between Israel and Hamas is raging in the besieged Gaza Strip, triggered by the Palestinian militant group’s unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7 that left 1,140 people dead, mostly civilians, and 250 people taken hostage, according to an AFP tally based on Israeli figures. In response, Israel launched a relentless air and ground offensive that has killed at least 21,507 people in Gaza, mostly women and children, according to the territory’s Hamas-run health ministry.
