Israel-Hamas War: On the 37th day of the Israel-Gaza conflict, the Israeli military supplied 300 litres of fuel to Shifa Hospital for critical medical needs. Here are the top ten key developments in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

1. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that their troops delivered 300 litres of fuel to Shifa Hospital for urgent medical needs. According to the IDF, Hamas prevented the hospital from accepting the fuel. “Our troops risked their lives to hand-deliver 300 litres of fuel to the Shifa hospital for urgent medical purposes. Hamas forbade the hospital from taking it," IDF wrote on X.

3. The largest hospital in Gaza, hospitals in the north of the Palestinian enclave, including the al-Shifa complex, has halted its operations, and the number of patient fatalities is on the rise, according to the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Sunday.

Simultaneously, the EU called on Israel to exercise "maximum restraint" in order to safeguard civilians.
