A group of 28 premature babies, evacuated from the main hospital in the Gaza Strip, crossed the Egyptian border on Monday to receive medical treatment, according to live footage and a Palestinian doctor.

The newborns were at Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, where several other babies died due to difficulties in care caused by power outages.

In footage broadcast live by Al Qahera TV, medical staff can be seen carefully removing small babies from inside an ambulance and placing them in mobile incubators, which are then transferred to other ambulances.

The infants, among 31 babies taken to a hospital in Rafah, southern Gaza, on Sunday so that their condition could be stabilized before being transferred to Egypt, were wearing only diapers and small green caps.

“In a catastrophic state”

“The babies were in a catastrophic condition when they arrived here,” said Doctor Mohamed Salama, head of the neonatal unit at Al Helal Al Emairati Hospital in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip.

Of the 28 babies who crossed the Egyptian border, 12 were flown to Cairo, World Health Organization (WHO) Director Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced on X, formerly Twitter.

More than 13,000 dead in Gaza since Hamas attack

At least 13,000 people have been killed, including 5,600 children and 3,550 women, in the Gaza Strip since October 7, the communications services of the authorities of the Palestinian enclave controlled by Hamas said on Monday.

More than 6,500 people are missing, including 4,400 women and children, Hamas added in a statement.

The Israeli army has been carrying out intensive bombings and ground interventions in Gaza since the Hamas attack which left around 1,200 people dead in southern Israel on October 7.

Limited evacuations have taken place since November 1 via the Rafah crossing point, the only one which does not border with Israel, even if departures have been suspended several times due to bombings from the Gaza side.

So far, more than 6,700 foreign nationals and their relatives have been evacuated, according to Egypt’s state information service.

More than 230 people, including civilians injured in the conflict, were evacuated to receive medical treatment, while some cancer patients were flown out of Egypt to receive specialized care.
