Many people are shocked by the bravery of an 11-year-old girl from the Gaza Strip who has managed to attract the attention of international media due to her actions.

The subject of the story is Sumayya Wushah, a teenage journalist covering the Palestinians in Gaza.

This young girl told Al Jazeera in an interview that she is not frightened to report from the city that has been devastated by the conflict in the Gaza Strip.

More than 100 journalists have died in this city since Hamas and the Israeli army launched its conflict on October 7, but the young Palestinian woman was unfazed, according to the Telegraph.

She made it clear that, although being aware that journalists were the target of attacks, her parents had first opposed her intention to report on the war.

But when they observed her tenacity and resolve to complete her task, they concurred and helped her in every way.

Regarding the work, he states that Shireen Abu Akleh, a seasoned journalist for Al Jazeera television who was murdered in Jenin by Israeli forces, served as an inspiration.

The eleven-year-old had dreams of becoming a journalist and appearing on television even before the conflict in the Gaza Strip.

The announcement was made just before the deadline set by Israel to evacuate the enclave’s northern region by 1.1 million inhabitants expired, ahead of what is anticipated to be a significant Israeli ground force assault into Gaza.

Shelters in the northern and southern parts of Gaza are unsafe. This has never happened before,” the statement read.

The organization emphasized that citizens, hospitals, schools, clinics, and United Nations properties cannot be targets under the rules of warfare.

UNRWA highlighted that it is making every effort to persuade the parties involved in the disputes to fulfill their legal responsibility to protect civilians, including those who are seeking safety in UNRWA shelters.

Many vulnerable people, especially pregnant women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities, UNRWA noted, will not be able to escape south.

“They need to be protected at all times and have no other option.”

As a result of Israel cutting off all utilities to Gaza, UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini stated that “it has become a matter of life and death” because water supplies are running low.

“It is essential. “In order to provide water to two million people in Gaza, fuel must be delivered immediately,” he declared.

Over 1,300 Israelis lost their lives when Hamas militants assaulted settlements near Gaza on Saturday. According to Palestinian officials, Israel’s aerial assault on Gaza has resulted in the deaths of over 2,200 people.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres declared on Friday that evacuating residents from Gaza would be “impossible” without having catastrophic humanitarian effects.

In order to uphold the core ideal of protecting civilians and “finding a lasting solution to this unending cycle of death and destruction,” the UN chief urged people everywhere to band together.

The World Health Organization (WHO) called Israel’s repeated orders to evacuate 22 hospitals in northern Gaza a “death sentence” for the ill and injured and strongly condemned them on Saturday.

The WHO stated that the forcible evacuation of patients and medical personnel “will further worsen the current humanitarian and public health catastrophe” because there are almost 2,000 extremely sick patients inside these wards.

According to the statement, the lives of those in critical care or on life support, such as neonates in incubators and people in need of hemodialysis, are currently in jeopardy.

“Medical institutions in northern Gaza are still having trouble keeping up with the influx of wounded patients and are operating at or near capacity. Because there aren’t enough hospital beds, some patients are being treated in hallways and outside on nearby streets, according to WHO.

It may be considered a death sentence to force more than 2000 patients to migrate to southern Gaza, where medical facilities are already overcrowded and unable to handle a sharp increase in patient volume.

According to the agency, hospital administrators now have a heartbreaking decision to make: abandon critically ill patients, risk their own lives by staying in the bombing area, or risk the lives of patients “while remaining on site to treat patients” or “while attempting to transport them to facilities that have no capacity to receive them.”

According to the agency, the vast majority of staff members have opted to remain in place rather than jeopardize lives by transferring severely ill patients.
