Gaza Strip: Bodies in the ruins of Al Sifa hospital – “No one escaped, vehicles passed over them”

‘ In Al Shifa no one escaped,” says the chief rescue team, after Israeli soldiers left the hospital complex in its northern part, describing images of “dispersed bodies” in the rubble. Dozens of passersby look awe at the magnitude of the disaster at the Gaza Strip hospital. Some people are digging through the ruins, trying to find something worth it. Some buildings have been leveled. Others are still standing, but having suffered significant disasters. Fire is still silenced in a damaged building. Three men are removing a wounded man with a stretcher. Al Shifa hospital, the largest throughout the Gaza Strip, “has been completely destroyed”, says French News Agency (AFP) Faris Afana, chief rescue team. “We must put an end to these massacres of civilians and children. Nobody escaped here,” he points out. While rescuers are still searching trapped in the rubble, firefighters attempt to extinguish the fire that is smokin’ in a complex building. “What is happening here is a disaster for humanity and the health system in the Gaza Strip,” Farris Afana says, denouncing buildings were set on fire and demolished by Israeli occupation forces. At the same time, it calls on the international community “to stop the massacres against the Palestinian people”. There were also reports of doctors and citizens inside the hospital complex that at least 20 bodies were found, some of whom showed that military vehicles were passed over them. A man shows bodies scattered around the hospital and says to the camera: “They will bury us here… we will not leave here.” The Israeli army announced earlier today that he “completed” his operations in the Al Shifa hospital complex and withdrew his forces. He had previously argued that he discovered “large quantities of weapons” in hospital sites, that his forces faced “terrorists” and that “they avoided harming staff and patients”. However, he did not present any evidence. The head of the rescue team characterizes the destruction of hospital beds as “inconceivable” and stresses that he has been surprised by the silence of the international community and especially the Arab world. “When will they do something? When the whole Palestinian people are wiped out?” he wonders. White House: Concerning information The White House said today that if the information on the bodies found at Al Shifa Hospital is verified, from where the Israeli army left today after two weeks of operations, it is “very worrying”. “This is very worrying if it is true,” said Karin Jean- Pierre saying Washington will “Contact the Israeli government to have more information”.
