  • Griffiths said that Israel’s campaign in Gaza has been waged “with almost no regard for the impact on civilians”, adding that Palestinians may not be able to return to northern Gaza due to widespread destruction.
  • Omar Shakir, Human Rights Watch’s (HRW) director of Palestine and Israel, has told Al Jazeera that more people in Gaza could now die due to disease and starvation than the Israeli military attacks as the situation in the enclave is catastrophic
  • Medical workers in Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital struggle to treat patients after the facility ran out of fuel, according to the authorities in Gaza, plunging one of the last functional hospitals in the enclave into darkness and endangering the lives of patients.
