“Al-Shifa Has Become a Graveyard”: Video Reveals Complete Destruction of Gaza Hospital by Israel

HeadlineApr 08, 2024

More video has emerged from Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza, which was largely destroyed during Israel’s two-week siege. This is Jonathan Whittall of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs speaking on the grounds of Al-Shifa.

Jonathan Whittall: “We’re here in what used to be Shifa Hospital in the north of Gaza, in Gaza City. Hospitals should always be places of safety. Hospitals should always be protected, places of healing. And yet I’m standing around in the midst of utter devastation. Shifa has literally become a graveyard. There are bodies still in this courtyard. The buildings have been completely destroyed.”
