We get an update from Avril Benoît, executive director of Doctors Without Borders, on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and violence hospitals are facing in the occupied West Bank. Israeli troops shot dead two Palestinian children Wednesday during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp, and medical workers say they were blocked from reaching the camp to treat the wounded. "Under humanitarian law, anyone should be able to reach a hospital," says Benoît, who is demanding a "proper ceasefire" in the region to allow medical aid to reach people devastated by Israel's war. She says the prospect of Israel resuming its bombardment of Gaza, including in the south where people were ordered to move, would be "a horror show."
