KRCS field hospital in Gaza receives critical cases although it has not declared open

Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) field hospital in Gaza received a number of injured and critical cases although it has not been declared as open and operating, due to the state of emergency amid threats by the Israeli occupation army targeting neighboring hospitals.

Medical Director of KRCS field hospital Dr. Anwar Al-Gharra said in a press statement to KUNA, on Wednesday, that the hospital, which had been kept shut after establishment, received a number of such cases in response to distress calls from several nearby hospitals in Al-Mawasi area, west of Khan Younis.

Al-Gharra added that the Israeli occupation forces targeted a number of hospitals in Gaza and its health system as most hospitals went out of service.

He expressed hope that the field hospital’s services would contribute to alleviating the suffering of the people of Gaza Strip in the difficult conditions they are facing, including a severe shortage of materials, medicines, medical and health supplies.

He also extended his sincere thanks and
appreciation to Kuwait, His Highness the Amir, government and people for their role in helping to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinians in Gaza, praising the role of KRCS for providing humanitarian aid and its distinguished cooperation with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.

For his part, Director of Health Programs at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society Dr. Bashar Murad said that KRCS hospital is considered the best field hospital in Gaza Strip in terms of equipment.

KRCS field hospital is located on an area of 750 square meters, equipped with the latest medical devices and equipment, including operating and intensive care rooms, in addition to incubators for newborns, a radiology unit, a pharmacy, and a medical analysis laboratory that contains the necessary equipment to conduct various types of medical examinations.
