The Gaza Strip’s health system has completely collapsed, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced on Tuesday.

The Israeli bombing of health facilities led to the death of 65 medical staff and the destruction of 25 ambulances, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza added.

The Ministry of Health spokesperson explained that 12 hospitals and 32 health centers were out of service.

The death toll in the Gaza Strip rose to 5,087, including 2,055 children and 119 women, on Tuesday, in addition to more than 15,000 wounded people.

The Ministry of Health added that it received more than 1,500 reports of missing persons still under the rubble, including 800 children.

The Israeli occupation army on Monday launched intensive airstrikes on residential blocks in different parts of Gaza at the same time, killing roughly 150 people – most of them women and children.

The Al-Shifa Hospital received hundreds of injured people on Monday afternoon, amid the collapse of the medical system in the Gaza Strip due to the blockade.

According to media reports, the number of dead received by the hospital reached 150 people, with hundreds more injured.

The incident follows the Israeli bombardment of the Baptist hospital in Gaza that killed nearly 500 people.

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) condemned the bombing of the al-Ahli Arab Hospital *aka Baptist hospital) in Gaza Strip by Israeli occupation forces.

The EOHR called on international institutions and major countries to intervene and stop the massacring.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza stated that a large number of injured people arrived at Al-Shifa Medical Complex after the occupation targeted six homes in the Strip.
