The spokesperson for the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qudra, stated that hospitals in the northern Gaza Strip have gone out of service amid intense Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) airstrikes in various areas.

Qudra noted that the health sector is facing significant difficulties and challenges in operating parts of the Al-Shifa complex.

"We will continue efforts to operate any hospital in the Gaza Strip despite the difficulties," added Qudra.

Regarding Nasser Hospital in Rafah, he clarified that it has become overcrowded with around 1,000 wounded individuals, stating, "The injured are lying on the ground."

In a separate development, the Israeli Occupation government, under pressure from the US, approved an increase in fuel supplies to Gaza, as reported by the Hebrew newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

They mostly agreed to raise the fuel quantity for Gaza from 60,000 to 120,000 liters.

The Hebrew newspaper mentioned that Finance Minister Smotrich and National Security Minister Ben Gvir voted against the decision to increase fuel quantities for Gaza.

Earlier, Hebrew Channel 13 reported, citing informed sources, that the Israeli Occupation security establishment recommended approving a US request to increase fuel quantities in Gaza.

The sources indicated that they proposed a gradual increase in the fuel quantities entering Gaza.

The US had requested the Israeli Occupation allow more fuel into the Gaza Strip after the truce with Hamas ended.

According to The Washington Post, US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller stated that "the Israeli government did not allow the entry of fuel early on Friday," referring to the day the truce, which lasted a week, came to an end.
