Rafah 12.30 am 5th of August

The Israeli army continues its' military operation in Rafah in the south of Gaza. Army tanks are heading into the refugee camp under cover of helicopters that fire shells on the civilian population. Four citizens at least were killed, including one woman and two children, tens more are severely injured and reported to be received at Rafah's only hospital. The number will increase.

Many of the in-patients were discharged to make space for the injured. My colleagues tell me that the shelling is too severe and ambulances can't reach many of the injured. The army tanks are very close to the hospital and one of the houses in the area was specifically targeted.

It seems that the military operation into Rafah will continue.......as evidenced by the increasing number of army tanks in the area.

  • I hope that those who need treatment will be able to be reached. It is so inhumane to deprive this. I also hope that the doctors are able to keep sane - there must be no rest for you and your colleagues and you must get weary. Be well and be strong.

  • Each time I think it can't go worse anymore ... is does. As amelopsis wrote, I hope the doctores will remain sane and functioning - something which is must be inhumanly difficult under the current conditions.
    I wish these killers get their just punishment!

    P.S. Remember what Margaret Thatcher(ex UK Prime Minister) called Nelson Mandela and the ANC - a "terrorist" and a "terrorist organisation"!!
