WHO says 291 patients still in al-Shifa

The World Health Organization (WHO) says 291 critically ill patients are still at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, after hundreds of Palestinians evacuated on foot yesterday.

Thirty-two of those are babies in extremely critical conditions, the WHO said.

Among the patients who remain there, the WHO observed complex fractures and amputations, head injuries, burns, chest and abdominal trauma during a visit to the hospital yesterday.

Twenty-five medical staff have stayed at al-Shifa.

Yesterday, the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza said that there were 120 people remaining still there.

The BBC can’t independently verify these figures.
