Clinging onto life: the premature babies trapped in Gaza hospital

Conditions continue to deteriorate at major hospitals across northern Gaza, cut off by the intense fighting between Israel and Hamas.

A Palestinian official says three premature babies have now died at Gaza’s biggest hospital, al-Shifa, because there is no power for incubators.

And the second biggest, al-Quds, has suspended operations.

Israel continues to bomb supposedly safe areas in the south – one air strike on a house in Khan Younis reportedly killing 13 people.

This, as disease spreads and people survive on tiny amounts of food and water.
