According to a report issued by United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the danger to medical staff and the difficulty of extracting the injured from collapsed buildings makes proper evacuation and estimation of casualties difficult.
Al-Mezan Centre for Human Rights reported that an estimated 80,000 to 90,000 Gazans have been displaced, including up to 50,000 children; 25,696 people were given refuge in UNRWAs 31 shelters.
OCHA report sated that “only 30% of Gaza City is receiving electricity and power supply for the rest is intermittent.”
OCHA report added that Gaza hospitals remain under intense pressure due to the high number of wounded who continue to be brought in for treatment. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the main problem currently facing the health sector is access, in terms of the access of staff, procured medicines and equipment to hospitals, and patient referrals out of the Gaza Strip.
