The UN has warned that fuel reserves at Gaza hospitals are expected to last about 24 more hours.
The UN humanitarian office said on its website the shutdown of backup generators would place the lives of thousands of patients at risk.
It comes after a number of aid agencies have called for access to Gaza in order to provide humanitarian assistance including fuel and water.
Earlier today, Ghassan Abu Sitta, a British-Palestinian surgeon working from Doctors without Borders in Gaza, warned that staff at his hospital do not have enough equipment to help people.
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden says Hamas must be eliminated entirely and there must be a path to a Palestinian state.
In an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes, Biden warned Iran and Hezbollah not to get involved and escalate the conflict.
He also vowed to do everything in his power to find US hostages that are still alive and “set them free”. END
