Middle East conflict live updates: WHO says health services in south Gaza will run out of fuel in three days


The World Health Organization said Wednesday that the closure of the Rafah border crossing meant health services in southern Gaza would run out of fuel in three days. “Without more aid flowing into Gaza, we cannot sustain our lifesaving support to hospitals,” WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing. Israel said Wednesday that it reopened a separate border crossing, Kerem Shalom, that was closed over the weekend after a deadly Hamas rocket attack. However, a spokeswoman for UNRWA, the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees, said that as of Wednesday afternoon it had not yet seen any fuel or aid enter.
