Palestinians Search Ruins of Al-Shifa for Loved Ones After Israel Obliterates Hospital

HeadlineApr 04, 2024

The World Health Organization is warning many patients could soon die if they are not evacuated from Al-Shifa Hospital, which has been left in ruins after a two-week Israeli military siege. Medical crews have found hundreds of bodies scattered across the medical complex. Palestinians are still searching the grounds for loved ones.

Abdullah Abu Elouf: “I am now searching for six people we lost in the war: my sister, all of her children, and my niece, Alma. May Allah have mercy on her. I have found no trace of them. They were buried here, and we don’t know what happened to their bodies or where they went. We don’t know anything. Here we find a number of uncovered bodies, and they are unidentified. We don’t know what to do with them.”
