Al-Shifa Hospital Reduced to Ruins after Israeli Siege, WHO Reports

According to World Health Organization (WHO) spokesperson Margaret Harris, speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, Al-Shifa Hospital "is now in ruins" following Israel's 14-day siege. Harris stated, "We've had contact with the staff. The directors have told us that Al Shifa Hospital is gone, it's no longer able to function in any way, shape, or form as a hospital." She emphasized that "destroying Al Shifa means ripping the heart out of the health system" in Gaza.

Satellite imagery dated April 1 reveals bulldozing and extensive destruction of buildings within the Al-Shifa Hospital complex. The hospital has been under siege by Israeli forces for two weeks, with the Gaza Civil Defense reporting the discovery of at least 300 bodies at the site so far.

Israeli Airstrike Killed Seven Workers of World Central Kitchen in Gaza

World Central Kitchen, a charity leading effort to combat the impending famine in Gaza, reported that seven of its workers were killed in an Israeli airstrike, disrupting humanitarian relief operations in the Palestinian territory as the organization announced a suspension of activities.

According to an early Tuesday statement, the workers were traveling in two armored vehicles marked with the charity's logo. World Central Kitchen (WCK) confirmed that the deceased individuals hailed from the U.K., Australia, Poland, and Palestine, including a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada.

The bodies of the aid workers were transported to a hospital in Rafah, located in southern Gaza near the Egyptian border, as confirmed by an Associated Press reporter at the facility. Hospital records indicated the deaths of three U.K. citizens.

The organization will temporarily halt its activities in the area and plans to evaluate the continuation of its work, sparking concerns that the potential collapse of a new maritime route from Cyprus to provide essential aid to Gaza, amid ongoing Israeli obstacles, may occur.
