Israel orders evacuation of largest hospital in southern Gaza

# Palestinians say Israeli forces have ordered thousands of displaced people to evacuate the Nasser Medical Complex, the largest hospital in the south of the Gaza Strip. Israel’s military said it had opened a secure route for civilians but did not intend to evacuate patients and medics. The United Nations says the hospital has been under siege for around a week and is only minimally functional. The Israeli military has previously accused Hamas fighters of operating from inside and around hospitals, a claim that the armed group and medical officials have denied.
