Israel Hamas war LIVE Gaza hospital evacuation ‘impossible’ as airstrike looms.

Health officials claim evacuating a hospital the Israeli forces want to bomb in Gaza is “impossible” because patients would die being taken off ventilators.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) is in a dangerous stand-off with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) commanders who have issued an order to clear al Quds Hospital in Gaza City.

The IDF have made repeated calls to medics at the facility, including two more warnings on Sunday, but so far doctors and the PRCS have refused to move saying some 14,000 people are seeking shelter in the building and compound.

Despite no evacuation taking place, the PRCS claimed two airstrikes struck just 50 metres from the hospital on Sunday.

It says babies, the elderly and young children are all being treated at the facility, meaning moving is impossible.

Dr Ghassan Abu-Sittah, a medic from North London is working at another hospital nearby, al Shifa, and he told Sky News: “Nobody’s left Shifa, nobody’s leaving anywhere.”

Israeli forces believe Hamas is using hospitals as cover and they say they have “concrete evidence” the terrorists use the buildings to launch attacks.

The Gaza health authority says more than 8,000 have been killed since the war sparked by Hamas began, which saw the death of more than 1,400 Israelis.
