GAZA: Ground battles and air strikes continued overnight in Gaza.

Shifa Hospital, Gaza’s largest, is totally surrounded, its director, Mohammad Abu Salmiya, said.

The Israeli military said it would help to evacuate babies Sunday from Shifa Hospital, where there is an intense humanitarian crisis.

“We will provide the assistance needed,” chief Israeli military spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said.

Two babies died Saturday at Shifa and dozens more were at risk when fuel for the generators ran out.

“Medical devices stopped. Patients, especially those in intensive care, started to die,” Shifa Hospital Director Mohammed Abu Selmia said by phone with gunfire and explosions heard in the background.

It was not immediately clear if the continued overnight fighting will have any effect on the planned evacuation of the infants.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has steadfastly refused to call a cease-fire that does not include the release of hostages Hamas took during its October 7 attack.

Doctors Without Borders\Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) says the hospitals in Gaza have been under “relentless bombardment.”

Al-Shifa Hospital has been hit several times, MSF says, including the maternity and outpatient departments, which has led to multiple deaths and injuries.
