120 patients need evacuation from Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis: ministry

Gaza, Feb 28 (UNI) At least 120 patients needed to be evacuated from the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis city in the southern Gaza Strip, the Gaza-based Health Ministry said Tuesday.

In a statement sent to Xinhua, the ministry said, “We need to evacuate more than 120 patients from Nasser Medical Complex to other hospitals to receive medical care,” citing the shutdown of various medical equipment due to Israeli strikes.

Nasser Hospital, the second-largest hospital in the strip, stopped operating after an Israeli military operation on Feb. 14 following a week-long blockade.

The Israeli army announced on Sunday the end of its military operations at the hospital after arresting about 200 suspects in Hamas activities.

It also revealed that during the operation, unused medicines bearing the names of Israeli hostages were discovered.
