Gaza doctors issue ‘SOS to the world’

After Israel imposed ‘total siege’ of Gaza, officials say power plant shut down completely.

Gaza-based reporter Nedal Samir Hamdouna says conditions in the besieged enclave were worsening every day.

“I don’t have the words to describe how terrible it is here,” Hamdouna told Al Jazeera, speaking from northern Gaza. “It’s like a ball of hell,” he said.

“The streets are empty. People are afraid to seek their basic needs, including water.”

Moreover, Hamdouna added that hospitals in Gaza were full as thousands were turning up to take shelter.

“There is no safe place to go to except for hospitals. This creates a problem for doctors and emergency workers when dealing with those who have been injured,” he noted.
