5 Patients Killed as Israel Attacks Nasser Hospital, Forcing Thousands onto Streets

HeadlineFeb 16, 2024

In Gaza, Israel’s attack on Khan Younis’s Nasser Hospital has killed at least five patients after electricity and oxygen supplies were cut off. This is a hospital volunteer describing the forced evacuation ahead of Israel’s incursion.

Hakeem Salem Hussein Baraka: “Ninety-nine percent of the people in Nasser Hospital evacuated. There are nearly 20 members of the medical staff still there. There is tension still. There is no protection or safety. Quadcopters are everywhere. Even ferocious dogs which have monitoring cameras around their necks are in the hospital in an aggressive way.”
