Thousands of displaced Palestinians looked to Gaza's largest hospital, Al-Shifa, as a safe haven, but with Israeli strikes intensifying and the fighting reaching the gates of the compound, there seems nowhere for them to escape. Doctors without Borders (MSF) denounced the intense battles around the facility as the "death warrant of civilians currently trapped in Al-Shifa Hospital signed by the Israeli military". "We cannot leave. If I am not here or the other surgeon, who will take care of the patients?" said MSF doctor Mohammed Obeid.
