Israel-Gaza war live updates: Medical workers trapped at main Gaza City hospital under ‘unrelenting’ bombardment

Doctors and nurses are trapped at al-Shifa Hospital, the largest in Gaza City, where a barrage battered hospitals and their surroundings, and some patients died without electricity needed for ventilators, aid group Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said Saturday. Its staff said thousands of displaced people were still sheltering at al-Shifa, with patients and ambulances unable to leave. The Israel Defense Forces said it would “coordinate [with] anyone who wants to leave the hospital safely.” Israel said Hamas militants were using hospitals as centers for their operations; doctors and foreign medics who have worked at al-Shifa denied such allegations.
