Civil Defense in Gaza mourns one of its officers

Tuesday 9-July-2024


The General Directorate of Civil Defense in the Gaza Strip mourned one of its employees in Central Gaza, in an Israeli bombing that targeted him while he was fulfilling his national and humanitarian duty.

The Civil Defense said in a statement on Tuesday, “With the martyrdom of Major Fadel Sakib Ataya, the number of our martyrs, who have been killed while fulfilling their humanitarian duty since the beginning of the ongoing genocide war against our people in the Gaza Strip, rises to 76.”

The spokesman for the Civil Defense in Gaza, Major Mahmoud Basal, confirmed, earlier last week, that “the civil defense crews are still working on recovering the bodies of martyrs and dealing with the wounded despite being subjected to constant targeting.”

He underlined that “the civil defense teams suffer from insufficient number of workers and the lack of the necessary equipment required to recover the bodies of martyrs and to deal with the injured in light of the ongoing random Israeli occupation’s bombardment.”
