Israel/Bodies in BagsBack

 Bodies found in bags marked in Hebrew at destroyed Nasser Hospital

KHAN YOUNIS, Southern Gaza, 21 April. - (ANA) - Horrific scenes after the Israeli military withdrew from Nasser Hospital on April 7, leaving trails of destruction inside the complex. What’s most shocking is the discovery of a mass grave, the largest so far in the city of Khan Younis.
 
In the hospital courtyard, civil defence members and paramedics have retrieved 180 bodies buried in this mass grave by the Israeli military. The bodies include elderly women, children, and young men.
 
Rescuers say some bodies were found inside plastic bags that have Hebrew writing on them. Some have their hands tied behind their backs and it looks like they were executed and then buried here.
 
Within the past half an hour, we’ve seen a group of people coming here – crying parents, family members – searching for the bodies of their loved ones.

“Appalled by the Israeli strike on a residential apartment in the densely populated Rafah in Gaza, which resulted in more children being killed.  We must stop this fighting immediately and bring an end to this conflict,”  British Secretary of State for the Commonwealth Tariq Ahmad said in a post on X.
 
One of at least two air strikes overnight on southern Rafah killed 13 children and two women who were all from the same family, according to Gaza hospital records.   - (ANA) -
