"Today, WHO also delivered trauma and emergency care supplies to the European Gaza Hospital and the Nasser Medical Complex in southern Gaza to cover the needs of 4500 patients," WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a post on the platform. on X social networks.
The WHO chief highlighted the damaging impact of "intense fighting" in southern Gaza, saying the fighting is making access difficult, as "it is increasingly impossible to carry out any health operations".
"This was the first delivery mission since November 29," Tedros added.
Since Tuesday, the Israel Defense Forces have been engaged in "intense battles" with Hamas fighters in the southern Gaza town of Khan Yunis.

Ghebreyesus reiterated that his organization remains "extremely concerned" for the thousands of "patients and health workers" in Gaza, stressing that the only way to protect them is by an immediate ceasefire.
