Gaza (IP) - The Israeli regime's relentless attacks on the Gaza Strip have now spanned 136 days, with the situation in Khan Yunis and Rafah in the south rapidly deteriorating.

Iran Press/ West Asia: The current focus of the Zionist regime's onslaught is on Khan Yunis and Rafah, areas that have become havens for war refugees seeking relative safety in the southern region of Gaza near the Egyptian border.

The mass displacement of millions of people in southern Gaza, coupled with severe shortages of necessities such as medicine and food, has exacerbated the already dire conditions. The recent targeting of Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis has pushed the region to the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.

Ashraf al-Qudra, the spokesperson for Gaza's health ministry, reported that Israeli forces have detained 70 medical staff members from Nasser Hospital, leaving only 25 personnel to tend to the wounded and sick Palestinians.

The toll of the conflict continues to mount, with Gaza's Health Ministry confirming an eighth fatality at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis following the Israeli military's disruption of electricity and oxygen supplies.

Dr. Ahmed al-Moghrabi, head of the plastic surgery and burns department at Nasser Hospital, recounted a harrowing escape from what he described as a "death checkpoint" during an Israeli raid on the hospital in southern Gaza.

In response to the escalating crisis, a field hospital has been established in southern Gaza to address the urgent medical needs arising from the ongoing attacks on residential areas in Khan Yunis, resulting in a rising count of casualties.

Meanwhile, Algeria has tabled a resolution before the UN Security Council calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, slated for a vote on Tuesday.

At least 127 people have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza in the past 24 hours. Israeli bombardment has killed at least 28,985 Palestinians and wounded 68,883 since October 7.
