The Palestinian Red Crescent said its operations at Al-Quds hospital in Gaza City face an “imminent threat” after the Israeli military ordered the hospital’s evacuation. The PRCS posted an “urgent appeal” on Friday saying that the hospital was “a sanctuary for over 400 patients and around 12,000 displaced civilians”. Meanwhile, the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) said it received a warning from Israel to evacuate five schools in Gaza “as fast as possible”.
