Health in Gaza: Victims of Baptist massacre are mutilated children and women
The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip, Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, said that most of the victims of the “massacre” at Baptist Hospital in Gaza were “children and women whose features were absent.”
This came in statements by the ministry’s spokesman posted on Facebook, commenting on the Israeli bombing that targeted the vicinity of the Arab National Hospital (Al-Baptist) in Gaza, resulting in the death of more than 500 Palestinians.
Al-Qudra added: “The Baptist Hospital massacre is unparalleled and cannot be described. Hundreds of victims arrived at the hospital and ambulance crews are still removing the body parts.”
He continued: "Most of the victims of the Baptist massacre were children and women whose features were absent. Some of the victims arrived without heads, with torn body parts and viscera out."
He added: "The torrent of victims and the type of injuries exceeded the capabilities of medical teams and ambulances. Doctors were performing surgeries on the ground and in the corridors, and some of them were without anesthesia."
Al-Qudra explained that “a large number of those injured in the hospital bombing are still waiting for operations, while the medical teams are trying to save the lives of others in intensive care,” pointing out that “the remaining treatment capabilities have only a few hours to go before we announce their actual exhaustion.”
