UNRWA reopens health facility in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, UNRWA, says it has reopened a health centre in southern Gaza’s city of Khan Younis after it was severely damaged.

In a post on X, UNRWA said the facility sustained damage in January. The UN agency also said that the absence of any other health facilities in the area makes the clinic, in their own words, crucial to support the displaced families that moved back in the area looking for shelter.

With Khan Younis’s Nasser Hospital forced to shut services down as generators ran out of fuel days ago, southern Gaza currently has only one partially functioning hospital.

There have been repeated attacks on Khan Younis, Rafah and al-Mawasi in the south of the enclave, all of which had previously been designated as humanitarian “safe zones” by Israel.
