Hospitals in Gaza are "on the verge of collapse" and in a worse state than during the 2014 war, and while under siege cannot get essential medicine and equipment needed to save lives, medical professionals and humanitarian organizations warn.Madhat Abbas, Gaza's Al-Shifa Hospital General Director, said hundreds are still waiting for further treatment, but without essential supplies, the hospital is at breaking point trying to treat them all.For all the patients in need of limb reconstruction there are only three doctors and two nurses who are qualified for this across the whole Gaza strip, and only one hospital has the necessary equipment to handle skin graft cases, according to MAP and Doctors Without Borders (MSF).Unable to cope, the ministry is now desperately trying to medically evacuate people outside of Gaza for treatment.
