was a call for help in a house which had been randomly shelled at
Mujama’a St, East Gaza City. It was nearly 01:00 on the last day of
Ramadan. The house was in complete chaos when the team arrived. There
was dense smoke everywhere and a very bad smell which hardly allowed
them to breathe. I got the stretcher and the flashlight and entered the
building, where I immediately saw a badly injured woman under the
staircase. I took her to the ambulance and went back to the house. We
managed to fit 3-6 people into the second ambulance…. What shocked me
Summary of findings from Surgery, Maternity and Pediatric Hospitals
The people of Gaza are facing the colossal task of rebuilding homes, roads and schools following the hostilities between Hamas and the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) last summer. Disagreements over border access and the importation of construction equipment and materials have delayed the removal of rubble and rebuilding. As a result, environmental risks to civilian health linger in Gaza despite calls for greater urgency and co-operation between The Palestinian Authority, Israel and the United Nations.
More than 20 leading doctors and scientists* from the UK and Italy denounce ongoing Israeli military aggression in Gaza in a letter to The Lancet, published today.
“On the basis of our ethics and practice, we are denouncing what we witness in the aggression of Gaza by Israel,” write the authors. “We ask our colleagues, old and young professionals, to denounce this Israeli aggression.”
