Medical teams are struggling with a large number of wounded following the end of the humanitarian pause and renewed Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza announced on Friday.
"The wounded are lying on the floor in emergency departments and in front of operating rooms as a result of overcrowding,” ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qudra said in a statement.
Israel early Friday resumed its military operations against the Gaza Strip after the end of the humanitarian pause, targeting various areas in the north, center, and south of the strip, resulting in dozens of deaths and injuries, according to the ministry in Gaza.
At least 32 Palestinians were killed and many others injured as Israel resumed striking areas in the Gaza Strip within hours of the end of the pause, the ministry said.
The pause between Israel and Hamas, which went into effect on Nov. 24, ended on Friday morning.
