The Israeli bombings continue unabated. On Tuesday, the army dropped bombs on the Ma’en school – where many Palestinians were taking shelter – in the east of Khan Younis. “We were in a school, a safe place. They threw the first rocket at us, people were shot to pieces, we saw body parts of some victims flying around,” said Aisha al-Raqb, a 70-year-old Gazan who lost her son Iyad.
Dozens of wounded Gazans were rushed to Nasser Hospital on carts, trucks and cars after the airstrike on the school at night and in the morning. The situation was downright dire. “Injured people and patients are lying on the ground. There is no life-saving health care in hospitals in the south of the Gaza Strip. That is why they are completely overwhelmed, they cannot cope with the quantity and severity of injuries arriving at the hospitals,” said a spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qudra. “We were scared and didn’t sleep,” said a child at the hospital.
