Gaza: More bodies recovered from mass graves

Tuesday 23-April-2024


Efforts are underway, for the fifth day running, to recover bodies of martyrs from mass graves left behind by the Israeli occupation army at the Nasser Medical Complex in the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis.

Civil defense and medical crews were able to recover a further 35 bodies at the Nasser Hospital on Tuesday, bringing the total to 310. Some 73 bodies had been discovered on Monday.

The Government Media Office (GMO) has accused the Israeli army of burying corpses at the hospital with bulldozers to cover up crimes, affirming that Israeli forces deliberately hid the bodies of people deep into the bowels of the earth and dumped waste on them.

Some of the bodies retrieved by civil defense and medical crews belong to women, elderlies and wounded civilians, and some buried people were found handcuffed and stripped of their clothes, which reflected that they were executed by Israeli soldiers in cold blood.

GMO said that the fate of about 2,000 citizens who were inside the Nasser Medical Complex when the Israeli army stormed and attacked it is still unknown, adding that there is no information if they were kidnaped or killed.

GMO called on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to launch an investigation into the massacres and atrocities that had been committed by Israeli forces at the Hospitals of Nasser and Al-Shifa.
