On October 2023, the unprecedented bombing of hospitals by the Israeli army killed more than 10000 victims in Gaza and injured more than 28000. By preventing the entry of medicine, medical supplies, and equipment, the Israeli regime has destroyed the health care system in the Gaza Strip. According to reports of the United Nations and the Red Cross, there is no way to provide relief and even primary health care to the injured. There focus is on targeting civilians and residential areas therefore the number of wounded and victims increase to such an extent that it is beyond the capacity of the health and treatment complexes. The report of the Gaza Ministry of Health indicates that in the recent attacks, most of the dead and wounded are civilians, especially women, and children. The recent invasions of clinics and hospitals is hoped to mobilize the humanitarian and medical societies to stand in solidarity and rescue civilians casualties in the face of these escalating invasions.
