Four pregnant women who were carrying white flags in an attempt to get to the hospital were shot down and run over by Israeli bulldozers in Gaza,

The victims were left to die in Tal al-Zaatar, an area controlled by Israeli forces for over two weeks. Moreover, there were numerous mutilated and decomposed corpses discovered in the area.

Pointing out the ruins of the Al-Awda Hospital, a resident told the Al Jazeera correspondent that “it was solely for childbirth and nothing more.” He further said, “Bulldozers arrived, rolling over them (people present in the hospital), crushing and killing them without mercy.”
