According to foreign media, the World Health Organization (WHO) spokeswoman in Geneva, Margaret Harris, said in a briefing on the situation in Gaza: “If the health and sanitation system in the Gaza Strip is not restored, the people of Gaza may die of more diseases than the bomb”.
The spokesman stated that since October 7, Israeli attacks have been continuing in Gaza, due to which all systems, including infrastructure, have been destroyed, while the shortage of other medical needs including fuel is worst due to attacks on hospitals.
