Hundreds of patients stuck in Gaza hospitals, UN says

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees has said “Hundreds and hundreds of patients” are stuck in hospitals in the north of Gaza.
Doctors say Israel told staff to evacuate Al-Quds hospital in Gaza City on Sunday but that moving patients – many of whom are in intensive care – is impossible.
The Palestinian Red Crescent says Israeli air strikes are continuing in the area.
Meanwhile, an Israeli tank and armoured vehicle have cut a key road from the north to south of the Gaza Strip, close to Gaza City, according to Palestinian witnesses.
Israel’s military says it is expanding its ground offensive in the territory, saying troops killed “dozens of terrorists” during clashes overnight.
Israel has been bombing Gaza since the 7 October Hamas attacks that killed 1,400 people and saw 230 people kidnapped as hostages.
The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says more than 8,000 people have been killed since Israel’s retaliatory bombing began.
