The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has warned that the healthcare system in the Gaza Strip, which has been under a hugely indiscriminate Israeli war for over a month now, has "reached a point of no return."

In a statement on Friday, the body described the coastal sliver's healthcare apparatus as "overstretched, running on thin supplies, and increasingly unsafe."

The overall situation, it added, was "risking the lives of thousands of wounded, sick, and displaced people."

More than 11,000 Palestinians, including 4,506 children, have been killed, and 27,490 others sustained injuries since October 7, when the occupying regime started the war against the coastal sliver in response to an operation staged by the territory's resistance groups.

During the war, the regime has been taking direct aim at hospitals, ambulances, and other healthcare targets under the pretext that they are used to either accommodate or transport members of Gaza's resistance groups.
