“We were in the middle of surgery. There was a strong explosion and the operating room ceiling collapsed.”
A doctor working at Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in the Gaza Strip, Palestine먹튀검증, where the explosion occurred on the 17th (local time) during the war between Israel and the Palestinian armed faction Hamas, described the time of the explosion as follows.
“It was a massacre,” Dr. Ghassan Abu Sitta, a member of Doctors Without Borders, recalled in an interview with Britain’s Sky News.
It is reported that at least 500 people were killed in the bombing that occurred at the hospital this afternoon. Many people are still trapped under the rubble of the building, and rescue operations are underway.
According to Doctors Without Borders and foreign media, at the time of the explosion, there were not only patients and medical staff inside and outside the hospital building, but also refugees who had sought refuge during the war.
Another doctor working at the hospital told the BBC the site was completely destroyed.
He said the hospital is currently empty as people are busy rescuing survivors.
After the bombing of the hospital, Doctors Without Borders said in a statement: “We are shocked by the explosion in a hospital that was treating patients and accepting refugees. We do not justify this shocking attack on the hospital and countless other patients, health workers and people seeking refuge.” “There is nothing that can be done,” he said.
The group appealed, “Hospitals are not targets. This bloodshed must stop. No more.”
