The Gaza hospital at the center of the Israel-Hamas conflict has been advised to evacuate immediately.

The Gaza hospital at the center of the Israel-Hamas conflict has been advised to evacuate immediately.

The Israeli Defense Forces launched an attack on Hamas sites in Gaza.

It has been reported that Israel has given a warning to the al-Quds hospital in Gaza to evacuate without delay. The director of the World Health Organisation expressed great concern about this order.

The Israeli government gave a warning to the Palestinian Red Crescent on Sunday, as there have been ongoing raids taking place just 50 yards from the hospital since this morning.

The head of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, stated on X that it is not feasible to evacuate hospitals filled with patients without putting their lives at risk. According to International Humanitarian Law, healthcare facilities must always be safeguarded.

It comes after Palestinian officials reported the death toll since the war broke out hit 8,000, as Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the “next stage of war” had begun. The Gaza death toll includes over 3,000 children, according to the health ministry.

Following a three-week period where Israel prevented the delivery of essential goods such as food, water, electricity, and fuel to Gaza, numerous civilians resorted to breaking into aid warehouses overnight to obtain basic survival necessities like wheat flour and hygiene products.

The UNRWA has cautioned that this “indicates a concerning deterioration of civil order.”


The World Health Organization finds the reports of evacuating Al-Quds hospital to be deeply troubling.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), expressed serious concern over reports that Israel issued an evacuation warning for Al-Quds hospital in Gaza.

On X, he wrote: “We would like to emphasize that it is not possible to evacuate hospitals that are full of patients without putting their lives at risk. According to International Humanitarian Law, healthcare facilities must always be safeguarded.”

in Syria

Jordan has requested for the deployment of Patriot air defense missiles in Syria.

The United States’ ally Jordan has requested for the deployment of Patriot air defense systems from Washington in order to strengthen its border protection during a period of increased tensions and conflicts in the region. This information was announced by the spokesperson of the Jordanian army on Sunday.

According to Jordan’s army spokesperson, Brigadier General Mustafa Hiyari, we have requested assistance from the United States in strengthening our defense system by providing Patriot air defense missile systems.

In 2013, the United States deployed Patriot missiles to the kingdom due to a potential spillover of a civil war in neighboring Syria, which could trigger a larger regional conflict.

Officials report that Jordan has become increasingly anxious about the possibility of an escalation of violence due to Israel’s continuous bombing of Gaza following a fatal attack by Hamas on Israel on October 7.

The Patriot is widely acknowledged as one of the top U.S. air defense systems and is consistently in high demand from global allies.

The government is seeking to crack down on extremism, with the Metropolitan Police chief stating that the police will be uncompromising in their handling of protests.

The leader of the Metropolitan Police has stated that his officers will be relentless in their enforcement of the law at protests, but also acknowledged that prosecutions can only occur when a law has been violated.

The government of Rishi Sunak is currently reevaluating the meaning of extremism, potentially giving councils and law enforcement the ability to withdraw funding from charities and religious organizations that promote hateful beliefs.

During a predominantly peaceful pro-Palestine demonstration in central London on Saturday, nine individuals were taken into custody. Approximately 100,000 protestors gathered to demand a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict. Out of the nine arrests, seven were for public order offenses, some of which are being investigated as hate crimes, and two were for suspected assaults on police officers.
