The bombing was the heaviest ever ... Testimonies of Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders documented their testimony of the brutality of the recent Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, which left a great deal of destruction and caused more than 250 martyrs and hundreds of wounded.


A statement by the organization, citing Ayman al-Jarousha, a Palestinian who has lived in Gaza for 20 years and is currently the coordinator of the Doctors Without Borders project, said: The bombing of Gaza was the most severe ever.


He added, "I have lived through the Israeli military campaigns (aggressions) that have occurred since then, in 2008 and 2014, but the military operation that we are subjected to today is much tougher and more terrifying than anything we have faced before."


He continued, "The bombing was continuous day and night without stopping. They target everything; roads, homes, residential buildings and everything. The Gaza Strip is 40 kilometers long, so wherever the bombs fall, we always hear them exploding. The intensity of the bombing and the degree of violence are completely unprecedented, as the shells come from everywhere." : From planes in the sky, tanks on the ground, and boats in the Mediterranean. What we experience day and night is horror. "


According to his testimony; The apartment building in which he lives in Gaza City with his wife, mother and children was damaged in an air strike on Friday, when the building guard received a call from the Israelis, telling him that all residents must evacuate the place because he will be bombed. We usually know that this connection comes a few minutes to an hour before the bombs fall. We ran across an eight-story staircase and in less than a minute everyone was out. I tried to get everyone to a place as safe and remote as possible. "


He continued, "I remember hearing my wife saying that she did not want to see the destruction of the place in which she grew up, and it has all her memories, and after we heard the sound of the explosion and we saw the dust, the fire consumed everything, the building was damaged and many apartments were destroyed, and I do not know what remains of our apartment." I also do not know if we will be able to return to live there, since then, and my family lives with my wife's mother, as for me, I sleep in the office, and I work most of the time, and I feel as if I am living a nightmare in wakefulness. "


He said, "Many families living in eastern Gaza had fled to the western side, as they were afraid of an Israeli ground invasion, and they were trying to find shelter near Shifa Hospital, the largest hospital in Gaza, and in schools run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA)."


According to al-Jarousha’s testimony, “I was really shocked by an Israeli attack that occurred during the nights of 15 and 16 May, a few meters away from the MSF office, and claimed dozens of lives. The sound of men and women screaming in the middle of the night was terrifying,” he says. Tonight, during the Israeli bombardment, the injured have fractures and wounds due to shrapnel from bombs and shells, and there are many needs now, especially in terms of surgery and intensive care, and the wounded women, men and children: no one is excluded.


"The planned expulsions of Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem, then the confrontations in and around the Al-Aqsa Mosque ignited the spark that led to this explosion. I lived through the second intifada at the beginning of the first decade of the twenty-first century, and the violence that is taking place today has nothing to do with what Then it happened, there is an excessive use of weapons. Today hundreds of rockets are being launched into Israel, and Gaza has been leveled on the ground, "Jarosha says.
