"The question of fuel – fuel meaning electricity in the Gaza Strip – being allowed in is going to be the next humanitarian issue", says FRANCE 24's Irris Makler.

A number of other hospitals in the Gaza Strip are not too far behind from facing the fate of the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital in Gaza as the Israeli blockade on all fuel to the under-bombardment strip continued for the 26th day straight.
