UN News goes inside Gaza’s biggest hospital

A major escalation in fighting between Hamas militants and Israeli forces across the Gaza border, has placed further strain on medical facilities there that are already overwhelmed.

For this special edition of our Lid Is On podcast, the head of our UN News Arabic unit, Reem Abaza, reports from the Al-Shifa Hospital, where dozens of victims of violence are undergoing often years of treatment, in the face of cutbacks and funding crises.
