Palestine Red Crescent Calls For Global Help To Stop "Humanitarian Catastrophe" In Gaza

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) has called on the world to help "prevent a humanitarian catastrophe" in Gaza, stressing there are "no safe areas" to evacuate civilians after Israel told half the population to migrate south.

"PRCS calls on the world leaders and the international community to intervene immediately to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe that is unfolding right now", it said in a Friday statement.

"We do not have the means to evacuate the sick and the wounded in our hospitals, or the elderly and the disabled. There are no safe areas in the whole of the Gaza Strip".

The PRCS described the Israeli evacuation order as "shocking and beyond belief".

"The whole people in Gaza feel that the world has turned their back on them", the group continued.

The PCRS called on international aid organizations on the ground in Gaza including the International Committee of the Red Cross to intervene with governments to "protect humanity and humanitarian space" and put pressure on "Israel to rescind this order".
