UN says ‘famine is imminent’ in northern Gaza as Israel launches another raid on the main hospital

March 18, 2024

The army last raided Shifa Hospital in November after claiming that Hamas maintained an elaborate command center within and beneath the facility. The military revealed a tunnel leading to some underground rooms, as well as weapons it said were found inside the hospital. Spanish NGO Open Arms has sent essential aid to Gaza by a barge towed by a ship from Cyprus. Northern Gaza, including Gaza City, was the first target of the invasion and entire neighborhoods have been obliterated. Palestinians rush to collect the humanitarian aid airdropped into Gaza City, Gaza Strip, on Sunday, March 17, 2024.
