Field hospital for wounded Palestinians from Gaza
The IDF, in cooperation with the Red Crescent, has opened a field hospital at the Erez Crossing, on the Gaza border, to treat wounded Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.
The field hospital contains an emergency room, lab, pharmacy, pediatric
ward, ambulatory clinic, gynecology unit, family and internal medicine,
and is equipped to treat dozens of patients.
Since the field hospital opened on 20 July, doctors and staff have
attended to 50 patients. Some have been treated and released, some
treated and sent on for additional care at a hospital, and some sent
immediately for hospital care. Unfortunately, Hamas has directly and
indirectly prevented patients from arriving for care at the field
