Gaza Hospitals Double Threat

Ghassan Al-masri, 22, rests at the Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Thursday, May 13, 2021, where he is receiving treatment for wounds caused by a May 10 Israeli strike that hit a nearby his family house in town of Beit Hanoun. Just weeks ago, the Gaza Strip’s feeble health care system was struggling with a runaway surge of coronavirus cases. Now doctors across the crowded coastal enclave are trying to keep up with a very different crisis: blast and shrapnel wounds, cuts and amputations.
