The authorities of the Gaza Strip, controlled by the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), have accused Israeli forces of continuing to tighten the siege of the Indonesian Hospital in the north of the enclave. They have raised concerns about safe evacuation corridors for patients. According to the Gaza Ministry of Health spokesman Ashraf al Qidra, there are fears that the Israeli forces could commit violence against those being evacuated from the Indonesian Hospital, as well as worries about the future of the hospital itself.
Al Qidra also noted the tragic situation of those trapped inside the hospital, with limited medical staff and a lack of basic necessities such as water, electricity, and food. The general director of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Munir al Bursh, added that the evacuation of patients, medical workers, and displaced people at Al Shifa Hospital is being delayed. The situation at the hospital is dire, with over a hundred patients in need of urgent surgeries and limited resources to support them.
The Indonesian Foreign Minister, Retno Marsudi, has strongly condemned the attacks on the hospital, calling them a clear violation of International Humanitarian Law. The attacks have ignited a global call to action, urging all countries, especially those with close relations with Israel, to use their influence to bring an end to Israel’s atrocities.
The Israeli Army has accused Hamas of using the hospital for military purposes and has claimed the existence of a network of tunnels under the facilities. The Medical Committee of Emergency Rescue (MER-C), the organization that finances the hospital, has denied these claims. The Indonesian authorities, along with the global community, have raised concerns that the hospital is being targeted in an attempt to end all health services in northern Gaza.
