The World Health Organization (WHO) on Sunday night managed to restore communication with health professionals at Gaza City’s Al-Shifa hospital a day after losing contact with the largest hospital in the besieged enclave. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus however said the hospital was non-functional after three days without electricity amid heavy fighting. Al-Quds, Gaza’s second-largest hospital, has also suspended operations, according to staff. Follow our live blog for all the latest developments. All times are Paris time (GMT+1).

Key developments from Saturday, November 11: 

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu rejected mounting international calls for a ceasefire and ruled out a role for the Palestinian Authority in post-war Gaza. 

Arab and Muslim leaders rejected Israel’s claims of “self-defence” with regard to its offensive in Gaza and called for an immediate ceasefire at an extraordinary joint Islamic-Arab summit on the Gaza crisis in Saudi Arabia.

Doctors Without Borders said it was “extremely concerned” about patients and medical staff at Gaza City’s Al-Shifa hospital, which lost electricity on Saturday, endangering the lives of patients, according to the hospital director.

Around 300,000 people attended a pro-Palestinian solidarity rally in London, which passed peacefully despite clashes between right-wing counter-protesters and police before the rally. Thousands of demonstrators also took to the streets in Paris, Marseille and other French cities.

Nearly 200,000 people had fled from northern Gaza to the enclave’s southern districts in the past three days, the Israeli army said Saturday.

More than 11,000 people, including more than 4,500 children, have been killed in Gaza since the start of the war, according to the health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza. The official death toll of the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel is 1,200.
