2 medical groups say they are pulling teams from central Gaza hospital due to IDF operations

Two medical organizations announced that they were withdrawing from a central Gaza hospital due to IDF operations in the area, CNN reports.

CNN cited a statement by the the International Rescue Committee and UK-based charity Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) that says the organizations are withdrawing their emergency medical teams from Al Aqsa Hospital in the city of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza after the IDF dropped flyers in the area telling Palestinian civilians to evacuate.

MAP and the IRC said they are “deeply appalled that our EMT has been effectively forced to stop working at a hospital where they have been saving lives.”

They said the IDF “dropped leaflets designating areas surrounding the hospital as a ‘red zone.'”
