Only six ambulances functioning across Gaza, says health ministry

Only six ambulances are left functioning in the entire Gaza Strip, the Palestinian health ministry said on Saturday.

According to the Gaza authorities, at least 121 ambulances have been destroyed by Israeli forces since the bombing started on 7 October.

“The occupation is still targeting health personnel through bombings and arrests,” the health ministry said in a statement.

“We are still struggling to operate some essential services, including intensive care units and nurseries,” it added.

135 Palestinians have been killed and 312 wounded in 24 hours, according to the health ministry in Gaza. An overnight Israeli army attack on a house in Rafah killed 14 Palestinians, including a two-year-old girl.

At least 23,843 people have been killed and more than 60,317 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
