Ongoing Gaza Conflict: ICJ Orders Israel to Prevent Genocide, Hospitals in Crisis Amidst Escalating Violence



Fierce clashes continue in the Gaza Strip’s southern city of Khan Yunis, with Israeli forces targeting Palestinian militants amidst rising humanitarian concerns. The escalation follows a recent ruling from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) instructing Israel to prevent genocide and allow humanitarian aid into Gaza. Gazan health officials report dozens of deaths due to the conflict, which has severely impacted the local hospital in Khan Yunis, lacking essential supplies and medical staff.
