“Israel’s tanks assembled at the gates of the main hospital in Gaza on Tuesday, with Joe Biden urging Israel to show restraint to protect the thousands of people stuck there. According to the UN, around 10,000 Palestinians, including patients, staff and people displaced by the war, are crowded onto the Al-Chifa Hospital site, though local officials say the number could be even more. ‘The situation is very serious, it’s inhumane,’ warned Doctors Without Borders (MSF) on X. … Clashes between Hamas fighters and Israeli soldiers have been concentrated around al-Chifa Hospital for days now, with Israel accusing Palestinian militants of using the sick and displaced as ‘human shields.’Israel has, however, not provided concrete proof for its allegations.” (11/14/23)
