Tuesday 9-April-2024


The Civil Defense in Gaza announced on Tuesday that the bodies of 409 martyrs have so far been recovered since Israeli occupation forces (IOF) withdrew from Al-Shifa Medical Complex and its environs in western Gaza and Khan Yunis, and work is still underway to recover more.

The spokesman for the Civil Defense, Major Mahmoud Basal said, “The General Directorate of Civil Defense is continuing its recovery efforts to retrieve the bodies of martyrs from Al-Shifa Medical Complex and its surroundings, as well as Khan Yunis Governorate, in the aftermath of the Israeli occupation forces’ withdrawal from both areas.”

He appealed to the international community and relevant authorities to provide and bring in specialized equipment and machinery to assist in retrieving the bodies of martyrs from under the rubble of destroyed homes.

This comes in light of the large number of reports received by the teams from local families about the disappearance of their sons during the presence of the occupation forces, with dozens of bodies still buried under the rubble.
