Thousands of Palestinians taking refuge in the hospital cannot even find drinking water

Thousands of Palestinians who fled Israeli attacks on residential areas of Gaza took refuge in the Shifa hospital in the west of the city. Families staying in the hospital garden are deprived of the most basic necessities of life.


One of the people who escaped the Israeli attacks in the area where their houses are located and took refuge in the hospital in Şifa is the Saada family of 6 people. Although Israeli warplanes attacked a building near the hospital, the family believes the hospital is a safe place for them, away from Israel’s missiles.

“We escaped from hell.” İbrahim Saada, 38, said they took refuge in Şifa hospital with hundreds of families and hoped nothing would happen to them here.

Saada claimed that his father was sick and suffering from kidney failure and explained his current condition as follows:

“We live a tragic life. We have no water or electricity. We don’t even know how to go to the bathroom. We want to live safely. We want to live at home with my family. “We want the war to end.”


The Beravi family, made up of a total of 6 people, is lying on a worn, cardboard bed in the garden of the hospital where they took refuge.

Speaking to AA correspondent, Palestinian Ashraf al-Baravi, 57, said: “The situation is tragic… There is no life here. “We lack the minimum needs for life: no water, no food, no bed.” he said.

Beravi said: “We were driven from our homes because Israel bombed our area in eastern Gaza City, killing children and completely destroying houses. We are afraid that a health disaster could happen to us. “We have no peace and we hope that the Arab countries are with us.” he said.


Melek Heniyye, 12, who lives with his family in the tent they set up in the garden of Şifa hospital, said he is constantly afraid because the war continues.

Little Melek explained the drama they experienced with the following words:

“We’ve been here for days. There is no water or electricity. We eat bread, thyme and light snacks. We saw people die from bombings everywhere. “I hope the war ends and I can return home and live safely as before.”


Sharing Melek’s wish, 13-year-old Muhammad al-Mevla said he wanted the war to end and they could return home and live a normal life.

Stating that they first took shelter in a school and then received information that the school was under bomb threat, Muhammed said that they came to the garden of Şifa hospital because they thought it was safe.

“We live a very difficult life.” Muhammed said his relatives died as a result of the shelling of nearby sites while they were returning home to collect some belongings.


UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq responded to journalists’ questions at the daily press briefing.

Stating that more than 350,000 of the approximately 1 million displaced people in Gaza are housed in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) schools, Haq said: “They live in very difficult conditions. There is no electricity in Gaza, hospitals are on the brink of destruction.” he warned.

Haq said UN partners on the ground said water consumption had dropped to 3 liters per person per day, and UN organizations in the region said their supplies were close to depletion.

Haq stated that they are in contact with many officials in the region, including Israel, and said: “Our goal is to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza quickly and sustainably.” he said.

Farhan Haq said that currently no aid has been sent to Gaza and that aid should not be a one-time event.

Regarding the increase in violence in the West Bank, Haq stated that violence in the region has reached its highest level since 2005 and that they are deeply concerned about the situation.


Hamas’s armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, launched a comprehensive attack against Israel on the morning of October 7, dubbed the “Aqsa Flood.”

As thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, Palestinian armed groups attacked and seized the Beit Hanun-Erez border gate on the Gaza-Israel border.

Armed groups then entered settlements inside Israel from here and the Israeli army launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of fighter jets.

It was reported that 1,400 Israelis, including 306 soldiers, were killed and 3,968 Israelis were wounded in the attacks carried out from Gaza.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza announced that 3,785 people, including 1,524 children, were killed and more than 12,000 injured in Israel’s attacks on Gaza.

It was claimed that 73 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank.

13 journalists lost their lives in Israeli attacks.

In the clashes that began between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Lebanese border on October 8, 12 members of Hezbollah, 2 members of Islamic Jihad and 3 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, lost their lives.

Two Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian lost their lives in the attacks carried out by Lebanon.
