What's Going Down at Shifa Maternity Ward

Ashraf Khalil and Jeffrey Fleishman report in the Los Angeles Times today:

The situation is perilous even for those seeking maternity care in Gaza's overloaded hospitals. Pregnant women face the decision of whether to deliver at home or risk trying to reach a medical facility, where critically injured patients take priority. Gaza City's main Shifa Hospital emptied its maternity ward on the first day of the Israeli air assault.

Maybe to make room for a Hamas hang out.
