Israeli occupation forces have threatened the Palestinian Red Crescent’s Al-Quds Hospital in Gaza to evacuate their premises, giving them until 4 pm on Saturday to leave, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

In a statement, the Palestinian Red Crescent expressed its deep concern over this unfair Israeli order.

Al-Quds Hospital provides life-saving services to patients and casualties, including those in critical condition in the intensive care unit, infants in the neonatal ward, and hundreds of displaced civilians seeking a safe haven.

The organization emphasized that, given the hospital’s essential role, they cannot comply with the Israeli evacuation order, and will remain bound by their humanitarian mandate to continue delivering services to patients and the wounded.

The Palestinian Red Crescent called upon world leaders, the international community, the United Nations, and the International Red Cross to intervene and ensure the full protection and safety of the organization’s facilities, teams, and missions in accordance with international law and the Geneva Conventions.
