31 Premature Babies Moved From Gaza’s ‘Death Zone’ Hospital


Thirty-one premature babies have been moved from Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital—which has been declared a “death zone”—to hospitals in the south of the strip for eventual transfer to Egypt.

The infants, some of whom weigh as little as 2 pounds, have endured hellish conditions, with their incubators losing power amid fuel blockades. They had to be put side by side on open beds, and at least three newborns died before they could be moved, according to Reuters.
