On the third day of an Israeli-Hamas ceasefire in Gaza, Palestinians were only beginning to realise the scope of their losses from a three-week Israeli onslaught, said the director of the Anglican Al Ahli Arab Hospital.

“Gaza is still full of blood and grief,” said Suhaila Tarrazi, who heads the hospital. “People are going to their homes and seeing the losses of their family members. Hundreds [of bodies] are still lying underneath buildings.” Tarrazi said, “It is a terrible, horrible situation . Gaza is a real catastrophe.”
