Israeli army blindfold, strip and detain displaced people inside al-Shifa Hospital

The head of the emergencies department at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza said on Wednesday that the Israeli army was “blindfolding, stripping and taking displaced people sheltering to an unknown destination”. 

He also refuted Israeli army claims that any incubators and baby food were given to the hospital.

“We have not seen anything off the back of these Israeli claims of them bringing in milk or incubators for babies,” he said. 

“There are no clashes inside the hospital, only gunfire coming from the Israeli army,” he added.

He described the situation as “terrifying” as dead bodies begin to decay, as people have been unable to bury them.
