At least 20 people may have been buried alive in Nasser hospital mass grave: Civil defence

Gaza's Civil Defence said that it believes at least 20 people were buried alive by Israeli forces in the mass grave at Nasser hospital, Khan Younis.

"The Israeli occupation buried a number of bodies in the Nasser Complex in plastic bags at a depth of three metres, which quickly decomposed them," it added.

The Civil Defence also said that Israel committed "field executions" and called for an international investigation.

"We discovered traces of torture on the bodies of some martyrs in Nasser hospital."

It added that bodies of children were among those found in the mass grave.
