Palestinian Authorities Call for Probe into Bulldozing Deaths at Kamal Adwan Hospital

HeadlineDec 18, 2023

The Palestinian Health Ministry has called for an urgent investigation into reports that Israeli forces bulldozed tents housing displaced Palestinians in the courtyard of the Kamal Adwan Hospital, crushing people to death inside their makeshift shelters. This comes just days after Israeli troops rounded up men and boys at the hospital, including medical staff. Among those detained was hospital director Dr. Ahmed al-Kahlout.

Dr. Ahmed al-Kahlout: “They raided the building, and they took all the employees for investigation. Also the injured people were being investigated. There were six bodies and a 60-year-old patient who died. They took these bodies. I don’t know what they did with them. According to the employees, they burned the bodies.”
