9. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Dr Mohammad Soboh Bahjat, Medical Doctor:
“These teams that are deploying to the northern Gaza Strip greatly assist the medical staff in performing specific operations and also in bringing the supplies that we need to operate patients from outside the Strip. During previous deployments, they brought many of the medical tools that we used in performing surgical operations and they also helped us operating on patients.
