“I specifically want to express gratitude to the World Health Organization. Thank you for all the efforts you are making.”
5. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Dr. Marwan al-Hamase, Director, al-Najjar Hospital:
“The population of Rafah has multiplied by five. The city of Rafah now has 1.5 million residents. Therefore, the Hospital of the Martyr Mohammed Youssef Al-Najjar cannot keep up with the number of individuals it can serve, primarily due to the shortage of medical staff, essential supplies, medications, and medical equipment. Within the hospital, there is no ICU, no CCU, no CT scan, and no MRI scanner. The hospital needs more tents, and we ask the WHO to provide them.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Rick Brennan, Regional Emergency Director, Eastern Mediterranean Region, World Health Organization (WHO):
“We visited al-Najjar hospital. A hospital that’s been built and designed to house 65 patients. They have over 300 patients today. And the majority of patients are trauma patients, many of them just kids frankly, and they are desperately trying every day to find the resources, to meet the needs of this incredible, incredibly heavy load.”
8. Various shots, medical supplies
9. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Rick Brennan, Regional Emergency Director, Eastern Mediterranean Region, World Health Organization (WHO):
“But this degradation of the health system is really striking. And the only way forward is peace. The only way forward is a ceasefire, and we hope and pray it comes as soon as humanly possible.”
10. Various shots, medical tents, WHO staff talking to patients
11. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Richard Peeperkorn, Representative in occupied Palestinian territory, World Health Organization (WHO):
“There’s a lot of talk about evacuation. Evacuation of people and a military intervention. Well, that would be a complete catastrophe. A complete catastrophe. First of all, there is nowhere people can go… that people can move. There is no room for any evacuation.”
12. Various shots, medical tents, WHO staff talking to patients
13. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Richard Peeperkorn, Representative in occupied Palestinian territory, World Health Organization (WHO):
“Secondly, it will have a disastrous effect on health, mortality, and morbidity.”
