Gaza: Over 200 Bodies, Including Children, Found in Mass Grave at Nasser Hospital

HeadlineApr 22, 2024

In Gaza, Palestinian civil defense workers have found at least 210 bodies buried in a mass grave in the courtyard of the Nasser Medical Complex in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis. The discovery comes two weeks after Israeli forces withdrew from the hospital. Al Jazeera reports many of the bodies found included children, young men and older women. Some reportedly had their hands tied behind their backs. Palestinians have been searching the hospital grounds for the bodies of loved ones killed during the Israeli siege.

Asmaa al-Shorbaji: “It is a difficult scene, beyond what you can imagine. It is a difficult scene for someone to bring back the body of a dear human being.”
