The World Health Organization (WHO) is reportedly working with Egyptian authorities to facilitate the evacuation of babies housed in the Israeli-besieged Shifa Hospital, and negotiations continue with the Israel Defense Forces.

Brennan stated that they were trying to form a convoy to move to Shifa Hospital for the evacuation of newborns, premature babies and intensive care patients, but this required a lot of planning and said: “Most Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances do not are working correctly.” Now, we brought an ambulance from Egypt and brought it to Shifa hospital.” “We’re thinking about taking him to the hospital,” she said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told US television CBS that efforts to minimize civilian deaths in Gaza have so far failed. Netanyahu claimed that Hamas was preventing civilians from going to safe areas.
