Allegations of Infant Death Amid Power Outage at Gaza Hospital: IDF Denies Responsibility

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza claimed that a newborn baby died at Al-Shifa Hospital due to a prolonged electricity outage caused by Israeli attacks. The ministry stated that the power outage affected the manual artificial respiration for premature babies. The hospital complex was also reportedly targeted, resulting in a fire.

The World Health Organization (WHO) noted that Al-Shifa Hospital and other medical facilities were “out of action.” The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) countered the claim, stating that a failed missile launched by Gaza terrorists hit the hospital. Last week, an Israeli strike targeted an ambulance near Al-Shifa, causing casualties. The situation remains tense, with conflicting narratives about the incidents.
