Days of Palestine – Jerusalem
Israeli occupation forces on Friday broke into Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem amid heavy firing of tear gas bombs.
Local sources said that dozens of patients and medical workers suffered breathing difficulties as a result of inhaling tear gas, and many patients were evacuated to other rooms.
According to the same sources, the Israeli occupation forces violently stormed the hospital and started to search the rooms and offices while firing tear gas canisters.
The Israeli occupation forces further held field interrogations with a number of Palestinian citizens before they withdrew from the place.
This attack is not the first of its kind. Makassed Hospital’s administration has repeatedly complained to the International Committee of the Red Cross and human rights organizations about the Israeli occupation forces's regular attacks on the hospital and its patients and staff, yet all calls for action have fallen on deaf ears.
