Palestinian Bodies Retrieved from Mass Graves Show Signs of Organ Trafficking, with Hands and Feet Tied

The Ministry of Health in Gaza has revealed harrowing details regarding the discovery of hundreds of bodies from mass graves at Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis after the withdrawal of the Israeli army from the city.

Ashraf al-Qudra, the spokesman for the Health Ministry, confirmed that the dozens of bodies removed from the mass graves were “decapitated and had their organs and skins removed.”

Almost all of Khan Younis is now in ruins due to the Israeli regime’s relentless bombing.

Bodies of children were also discovered in the mass graves. Some bodies were found with hands and feet tied, with signs of field executions. It is unknown if they were buried alive or executed.

Earlier this month a new mass grave was found at the al-Shifa Hospital after a two-week atrocious siege by the Israeli forces. Several other mass graves had also been found earlier at the largest medical complex in Gaza which has now been severely destroyed by the Israeli forces.

Al-Qudra further revealed that similar crimes against humanity were carried out in other hospitals across Gaza including at Kamal Adwan, al-Quds, and al-Amal hospitals, which were “invaded and destroyed” by the Israeli occupation.

The stealing of organs from the bodies were likely placed in mass graves by the Israeli army to conceal any evidence of organ trafficking committed by the IOF.

The Israeli regime has also repeatedly bombed hospitals, refugee camps, mosques, churches, bakeries and hospitals in Gaza, causing a humanitarian catastrophe in the Palestinian territory, displacing almost all of Gaza’s population.

The occupation entity has now killed more than 34,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children since Oct. 7, 2023, while injuring over 70,000. More than 7,000 are still missing, presumed dead under the rubble, with rescue teams unable to retrieve the ones trapped due to a lack of equipment caused by the Israeli regime’s bombing of excavators and ambulances.

A crippling blockade of humanitarian aid entering the strip imposed by “Israel” has led to a humanitarian catastrophe in the Palestinian territory.
