Decomposed bodies of infants found in evacuated hospital ICU in Gaza

Decomposed bodies of infants found in evacuated hospital ICU in Gaza

Gaza City: The decomposed bodies of infants were found on hospital beds in the ICU ward of the evacuated Al-Nasr hospital in Gaza, the media reported.

Tiny bodies of babies were still attached to the hospital machines meant to keep them alive and spare diapers and milk bottles were found next to the bodies on the sheets, CNN reported.

A video in which four decomposed bodies could be seen was filmed on November 27 by journalist Mohamed Baalousha, a Gaza reporter for UAE-based news outlet Al Mashhad. Baalousha has shared the video with CNN. He shared an unblurred version with CNN, which shows the remains of at least four infants.

The bodies of the babies appear to be darkening and disintegrating from decay, with little more than skeletons left in some of the beds. Flies and maggots are visibly crawling across the skin of one child, reports CNN.

"As per Israeli forces direction, Al-Nasr hospital was evacuated on November 10," several medical staff and health officials working there said.

The area around Al-Nasr Hospital in northern Gaza has been largely unreachable to journalists in recent weeks due to the intensity of the fighting. However, during the seven-day truce, Baalousha said that he was able to access the hospital to film what was left there, reports CNN.

From early November, the Al-Nasr and Al-Rantisi children’s hospitals, which form part of the same complex, had become the frontline of fighting between Israeli and Hamas forces.

Several medical staff and health officials from Al-Nasr in their statements and interviews said they had to hurriedly evacuate the hospital on November 10, under the direction of Israeli forces.

The medical staff said they had to leave young children behind in the ICU as they had no means to safely move them, reports CNN.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) has denied responsibility for these deaths.
