Lebanon's struggling hospitals are at risk of collapsing if the conflict with Israel escalates further. The hospitals are already overwhelmed with treating wounded individuals from explosions, and they lack staff and fuel. The economic collapse in 2019 left the hospitals ill-equipped to handle the current crisis, and an escalating conflict on the southern border with Israel is pushing the healthcare sector to its breaking point.

The Lebanese health ministry has stated that its budget can no longer meet demand, and hospitals are in dire need of support.
