Israeli aggression puts Kuwaiti Specialty Hospital in Rafah out of service

Tuesday 28-May-2024


The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) repeated attacks on the Kuwait Specialty Hospital in Rafah, one of a few places offering medical care for over 1.2 million people in the southern Gaza Strip city, forced it to shut down Monday.

“Due to the Israeli occupation forces expansion of their military operation in Rafah and their repeated and deliberate attacks on the hospital and its vicinity, including the deadly bombardment of its main gate recently in which two of the medics were martyred in addition to the injury of five others in a previous attack, we announce that the Kuwait Specialty Hospital in Rafah is now out of service,” Director of the Kuwaiti Hospital Dr. Suhaib Al-Hams said in a statement.

He pointed out that the doctors and other medical workers would move to the field hospital, which is currently established at Al-Mowasi refugee camp.

In defiance to all international calls and the International Court of Justice’s demand, the Israeli occupation army has continued and expanding its ground and air attack on the densely-populated city of Rafah since May 6th.

During their ongoing offensive, the Israeli forces carried out dozens of brutal massacres, killing hundreds and injuring thousands of civilians and displaced people in the city.
