PALESTINIANS ARE FLEEING NORTHERN GAZA AS ISRAELI TROOPS BATTLE PALESTINIAN MILITANTS.

The fighting between Israeli troops and Palestinian militants in northern Gaza has caused more than 200,000 people to flee south in the last 10 days, the U.N. humanitarian office reported on Tuesday.

OCHA, the humanitarian office said that only one hospital in the north is capable of treating patients. Reports by AP News says that some of the fighting is around hospitals where patients, newborns and medics are stranded with no electricity or supplies.

Israel has accused Hamas of using hospitals as cover for its fighters, alleging that Hamas has set up its main command center beneath Shifa hospital, which is presently the largest in the besieged territory. The Hamas and Shifa hospital staff has denied these Israeli allegations.

The southern part of Gaza is not safer. Israel carries out frequent airstrikes against what it says are militant targets that often kill women and children.

Over two-third of Gaza’s population of about 2.3 million have fled their homes since the war began.
