Dr. Maurro della Torre, an International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) surgeon and anaesthetist who came in to reinforce the Palestinian medical team at Shifa Hospital in Gaza, spoke about the daily struggles at Shifa Hospital, where hundreds of Gaza’s wounded are being treated, in a video released by the ICRC on August 5.“Patients who arrive at the hospital in Gaza are often very seriously injured,” said della Torre. “Staff have to act very quickly to save lives. In the emergency room, the most urgent cases get quick attention – these people are resuscitated.” Credit: International Red Cross
