El-Arish General Hospital received the first batch of Palestinian casualties on Monday afternoon, who were transferred from Gaza following Israeli attacks.
The hospital received three casualties who had been injured, including two men -- Mohamed Abdel Salem and Ahmed Ibrahim -- and one child -- Yazen Hazem.
According to relatives who accompanied the casualties to Egypt, Israeli forces had been targeting civilians. This includes children like Yazen, who was severely injured when a missile hit her home.
El-Arish hospital has already sent 50 ambulances and a dedicated medical team to receive more injured from Gaza as part of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s directives to support Palestinian people in the current crisis.
According to the latest numbers issued by the Palestinian Health Ministry, 197 people have been killed -- including 58 children and 34 women -- and at least 1,235 have been injured since the start of the Israeli attack in Gaza.
