O hospital was the scene of an Israeli military operation that lasted more than a week in April.

The bodies were also found in apartments around the hospital, which was completely devastated and out of service, spokespeople for the two institutions said today.

The Gaza government, controlled by Hamas, claims to have found more than 520 bodies in seven mass graves on the grounds of hospitals that were invaded by Israeli forces in recent weeks, such as Shifa, Naser in Khan Younis and Kamal Adwan in Beit Lahia .

The Israeli army raided these hospitals en masse on several occasions, particularly in April, claiming that they were used by the Islamist movement Hamas as a hideout and regrouping base.

“A virtual examination of the bodies exhumed from the mass graves showed that the majority of them belonged to patients deprived of healthcare,” Civil Defense said.

The source said there are bodies mutilated after being run over by military vehicles, as well as disembodied heads in mass graves in the courtyards of the Shifa complex.

Since October 7, 34,971 Gazans have been killed in the Israeli offensive and 78,641 injured, with 10,000 bodies still missing under the rubble, according to a count by the Gaza Strip’s Ministry of Health.

The Israeli army continues its offensive in Rafah, where today it ordered the evacuation of more neighborhoods to the east and in the center of the city, and resumes its military activity in Jabalia, in the north, where it also ordered the exit of the civilian population in the face of the regrouping of the Hamas.
