Israel-Gaza war live updates: Gaza’s largest hospital is an ‘open war zone,’ Health Ministry says

Health-care infrastructure in Gaza City is facing near-total collapse as fierce fighting rages around hospitals with dwindling food, fuel and water supplies. Gaza’s Health Ministry said its largest hospital, al-Shifa, was an “open war zone” on Sunday, a day after the ministry’s director general told The Washington Post that Israeli forces were “striking us from all sides.” Israel denied that its forces were targeting or blockading al-Shifa. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ruled out any role for the Palestinian Authority in the Gaza Strip, saying Israel would assert “total security control” after the fighting ends. The Rafah border crossing with Egypt will open again on Sunday for “foreign passport holders” whose names are on preapproved departure lists, Wael Abu Omar, a Gaza border official, told The Post.
