According to sources World health Organization staff visited on monday a Gaza hospital receiving casualties from deadly strikes on a refugee camp, hearing distressing stories of entire families killed and seeing dying children. “WHO’s team heard harrowing accounts shared by health workers and victims of the suffering caused by the explosions,” the UN health agency chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on X, formerly Twitter. “One child had lost their whole family in the strike on the camp. A nurse at the hospital suffered the same loss,” he said.

The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza says that at least 70 people were killed in Israeli strikes late sunday on three houses in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp. AFP was unable to independently verify the toll. The Israeli military said it was “reviewing the incident” and “committed to international law including taking feasible steps to minimise harm to civilians”. Rows of victims’ bodies, shrouded in white bags, lined the ground at Al-Aqsa hospital in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza, ahead of a mass funeral.

Sean Casey, a WHO Emergency Medical Teams coordinator who was on Monday’s mission to Al-Aqsa hospital, described doctors providing pain relief to a critically injured nine year old boy named Ahmed. He “was being treated basically with sedation to ease his suffering as he dies”, Casey said in a video shot inside Al-Aqsa, seeming to fight back tears. “We as an international community should not accept that thousands upon thousands of people, children are being blown up, being killed while they’re crossing the street, while they’re sleeping in their beds,” Casey said.
