Bodies discovered in Gaza's al-Shifa hospital after Israeli siege

Palestinian medical and security sources reported on Monday the discovery of at least nine bodies in the courtyard of al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, reported Xinhua.

According to Ismail Al-Thawabta, director of the Gaza Government Media Office, the bodies were victims of the Israeli army.

The recovery of the bodies follows an Israeli military operation at the Al-Shifa complex, which, as per Al-Thawabta, resulted in the execution of 400 people.

However, only nine bodies have been retrieved so far, and among the recovered were patients, some with medical supplies.

Activists on social media platforms have shared video clips showing the burial of numerous bodies under earthen barriers within the hospital's grounds.

Muatasim Salah, a doctor of the hospital, told Xinhua that the hospital was completely out of service after the Israeli siege, and it is difficult to resume work inside it at present.

He added that the Israeli army destroyed and burned all medical equipment in the hospital complex, including operating rooms, intensive care units, all specialized departments, and mortuary refrigerators.

Al-Shifa complex is the largest governmental health institution affiliated with the Ministry of Health, providing medical services in the Gaza Strip. Since March 18, the Israeli army had conducted a two-week siege in Al-Shifa.

      Tragic events like these are unfortunately common in conflict zones where hospitals become targets of military operations. It’s heartbreaking to see healthcare facilities being attacked and patients becoming victims. International organizations often face challenges in providing assistance during sieges due to restricted access and security risks.
