WHO director says Gaza health system ‘on its knees,’ backs UN chief’s call for ceasefire

The health system in the Gaza Strip is “on its knees” and nearing total collapse, says the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In a tweet expressing support for UN chief Antonio Guterres’ calls for a ceasefire, Ghebreyesus says Gaza’s health system, run by terror group Hamas, is “on its knees and near total collapse. We need peace for health.”

Guterres raised Israel’s ire today (Wednesday) after he invoked a rare clause in the UN charter in a letter to the UN Security Council calling for action on Gaza.
