Dr. Mona Elfaraa from Al Awda hospital, Gaza

November 6th, Dr. Mona Elfaraa from Al Awda hospital, Jabalya, Gaza:

"No-one is safe. This morning little five and six-year old children, wounded in a missile attack, were brought to our hospital. They were shaking and crying with fear. Their teacher Najwa Kholeef had been wounded in the head. A sixteen-year old boy and twenty-year old man had been killed.

I have seen some of the shrapnel that was recovered from the previous day's injuries , marked clearly with USA, the shrapnel and the kinds of wounds are unusual , surgeons have not come across them before , some of the bodies with totally burnt, limbs are missing and one of the bodies was covered with hundreds of pieces of small shrapnel. We do not have the time and facilities to investigate the causes.

Tanks and armored vehicles have been surrounding the Beit Hanoun hospital for the last six days and preventing medical volunteers and victims of violence from reaching it.

On Sunday our colleagues, 21 year old ambulance driver Ahmad Madhun and medical volunteer Mustafa Habib were murdered and Dannielle Abu Samra was wounded while trying to tend to the wounded. "
