This is an exclusive account of a first-hand account of the siege of the Rabia al-Adawiya field hospital by Egyptian security forces on August 14th 2013
Where is the world outcry on this?
Can you imagine the screaming headlines around the world if this was Israel?
I know the answer and I’m sure you do too.
Blood stained the staircases and corridors. Screams from the injured filled six whole floors, where bodies lay torn apart by live ammunition, birdshot and shrapnel. Hundreds of corpses lay stacked in the main halls and corridors as the doctors’ continuous cries for help echoed out while they tried, with minimal capabilities, to save whomever they could before the wounded gasped their last breath.
“Keep your head low and run” came the warning from an individual standing a few meters from the hospital entrance. A sniper from the security forces had been targeting all passersby and visitors to the hospital to prevent the delivery of aid or medicine, which had been depleted inside. From the moment the confrontation started early Wednesday morning, Aug. 14, and until the hospital was overrun and burned, at least eight people were killed in the area, shot by a sniper atop a building facing the hospital entrance.
I had an issue with posting the video, which Susan has very kindly posted below.
