DOHA, Jan 24 (KUNA) -- The medical team sent by Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) to Gaza Strip on the heels of the Israeli offensive revealed that 70 percent of the wounded people lost one of more limbs.
Briefing reporters on the QRCS mission upon return from Gaza on Saturday, Dr. Saad Abu-Hasana said the team inspected most of the victims of the brutal Israeli aggression.
"Almost 70 percent of the injured people lost one or more limbs. Many of the victims of the 23-day aggression are children and women," Abu-Hasana affirmed.
The Israeli forces used internationally-banned weapons which cause serious burns and skin and muscle defamations, he said, noting that it was the first time for him to see such burns.
Abu-Hasana asserted that the Israeli aggression resulted in horrific tragedies on a large-scale.
"Most of the injured people had to undergo surgeries on the ground due to the lack of vacant beds," he disclosed.
He extolled the Palestinian physicians for "the excellent job" they had done during the ordeal of Gaza.
For his part, QRCS CEO Khaled Bin-Ghanem Al-Ali said his organization scaled up its efforts to rehabilitate the embattled healthcare sector of Gaza Strip.
"The society is supplying the health facilities in Gaza with medical equipment and personnel training.
"It is developing rehabilitation plans for the medical infrastructure in Gaza Strip on the short, medium and long, -terms," Al-Ali pointed out.
QRCS has recently announced setting aside USD 800,000 to the rehabilitation of Al-Quds Hospital.
It has also sent medical assistances amounting in value to QR 12 million to Gaza Artificial Limb Center which is currently accommodating some 800 amputees. (end) ma.gb KUNA 242328 Jan 09NNNN
