    “Operations without anesthesia.” A heartbreaking diary inside a hospital on the verge of collapse in AP23296497899046
    Gaza hospitals suffer due to lack of supplies and fuel.
    The story of the young man, Omar Ahmed, who was injured in an Israeli raid and is receiving treatment at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, sums up the story of a medical system on the verge of collapse, according to a report by the London-based Financial Times. .[/size]
    [size=45]During the five days that Ahmed spent in one of the hospital wards, not a single moment passed without pain, as his burns were treated and cleaned without anesthesia, while he was given some mild painkillers that were of no use in his condition.[/size]
    [size=45]The crowded room that Ahmed (25 years old) shares with five other victims of serious burns suffers from power outages for long periods of the day, not to mention the lack of an air-cooling device, as the high heat makes him sweat a lot, which led to infection of his wounds. What he said.[/size]
    [size=45]Despite all these pains, Ahmed is threatened with being discharged from the hospital, as the young man, whose leg was also broken in an explosion while trying to flee northern Gaza, says: “The administration is asking people to leave when they are 60 or 70 percent recovered... and I don’t know what I will do.” If I have to go out.”[/size]
    [size=45]Nasser Hospital, which has 350 beds, is no exception. After 3 weeks of violent Israeli bombing, medical services in Gaza are on the brink of collapse, with exhausted health teams doing their best, despite rapidly dwindling medical resources.[/size]
    [size=45]Israel cut off electricity to the Gaza Strip, and the fuel needed to operate the generators at Nasser Hospital is low, while medical supplies are about to run out.[/size]
    [size=45]Surgery is sometimes performed without routine anesthesia. According to doctors, the priority is to keep stocks in reserve “for difficult cases.”[/size]
    [size=45]The hospital director, Nahed Abu Taima, said: “We performed caesarean sections on pregnant women who were injured in the bombing without anesthesia, and we also had to clean severe burns without anesthesia.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added: “We are suffering from a severe shortage of supplies.”
    Abu Taima fears a decrease in the fuel needed to operate the hospital’s generators, adding: “We need between 200 to 300 liters every hour.”
    He added: “We get what we can from gasoline stations, but the fuel could run out at any moment, and the generators that are now working 24 hours a day are at risk of collapsing.”[/size]
    [size=45]About 2.3 million people live in Gaza, under what United Nations officials describe as “catastrophic humanitarian conditions.”[/size]
    [size=45]The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in the Hamas-controlled Strip, Ashraf Al-Qudra, said, “12 hospitals and 32 medical facilities have been closed since the conflict began this month.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added: “Hospitals remaining open does not mean that they are able to provide services to the wounded and sick who come to them.”[/size]
    [size=45]Israel has also issued evacuation orders for some hospitals (including Dar al-Shifa in Gaza City) that are still operating, claiming that the medical sites are being used by Hamas as military staging points.[/size]
    [size=45]In a related context, Doctors Without Borders, an international medical charitable organization, described military pressure on the hospital system as “impossible and dangerous.”[/size]
    [size=45]The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said it was “deeply concerned” by reports that medical teams at Al-Quds Hospital in Gaza City had received orders to evacuate the hospital immediately.[/size]
    [size=45]The Union considered that “evacuating patients, including those in intensive care, those on life support, and children in incubators, is impossible in the current situation.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added in a statement: “Our teams also reported violent attacks and shelling near the hospital, putting people at greater risk.”[/size]
    [size=45]More than 8,000 Palestinians, most of them civilians, including women and children, were killed in Israeli raids on Gaza, according to the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health.[/size]
    [size=45]Israel began bombing the Gaza Strip after Hamas militants, classified as a terrorist group, launched unprecedented attacks on October 7, resulting in the killing of 1,400 people, most of them civilians and including women and children, according to the Israeli government.[/size]
    [size=45]At Nasser Hospital, ambulances arrive around the clock to transport the wounded to the emergency entrance, where the department has become so crowded that doctors are treating patients on the floor and in the corridors.[/size]
    [size=45]Dust and ash covered many of the injured and injured, after they were recovered from under the rubble of their bombed homes.[/size]
    [size=45]“Tragedies of the Deadliest Night of Bombing”
    During the deadliest night of Israeli bombing, Friday, communications were cut off throughout the Strip. “The delay in reaching the wounded that night definitely increased the number of deaths,” said Ezz El-Din Mkhaimer, an ambulance crew member at Nasser Hospital.[/size]
    [size=45]He said: “We headed towards columns of smoke or fires, without even knowing if there were wounded,” adding: “Sometimes the people who brought the wounded in private cars would tell us where to go.”
    Ashraf Al-Shanti, another paramedic, said: “What we witnessed in this war was the harshest compared to previous wars. We go to places that were bombed and find entire families killed or injured.”[/size]
    [size=45]The director of Nasser Hospital explained that they had to “provide 100 additional beds to deal with the influx of wounded,” and the surgery department was expanded at the expense of other services.[/size]
    [size=45]He continued: “80 percent of our beds are now designated for surgical operations. There is not a single bed empty.”[/size]
    [size=45]The hospital was also forced to expand the intensive care department to accommodate those with serious injuries.[/size]
    [size=45]In this regard, the head of the intensive care unit, Abd Rabbo Al-Atroush, said: “Any person who comes now having a heart attack must be treated in a regular room without the necessary equipment.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added: “There is a large amount of work, and there are not enough doctors.”[/size]
    [size=45]With basic equipment and supplies – such as ventilators, medications, anesthesia, antibiotics, medical solutions, and blood – becoming increasingly scarce, Al-Atroush admitted that the hospital “is no longer able to treat every wounded person who requests help.”[/size]
    [size=45]He continued sadly: “We have to make a decision about who should be treated quickly. We cannot deal with hopeless cases. It is a very tragic situation, and catastrophic in every sense of the word.”[/size]
