The injuries sustained by Gaza protesters at the hands of Israeli troops during the ongoing Great March of Return are unusually severe, doctors say, adding they have seen nothing similar since the Israeli war of 2014.
Marie-Elisabeth Ingres, head of mission of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Palestine, said in a report released last week:
The international medical group stressed that its doctors treated a number of patients with devastating injuries of an unusual severity who will have to undergo complex surgical operations.
The majority of the victims will have serious and long-term physical disabilities, according to the report.
Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), a British charity that operates in the West Bank and Gaza, also expressed concern.
Israel’s 2014 Operation Protective Edge in Gaza resulted in over 2,000 deaths.
