A patient hit in the chest with shrapnel lies on a bed in a Rafah hospital. Doctors prefer to send most mild cases home as soon as they can to empty spaces for new injuries.
The most severe cases are treated in the ICU of a hospital between Rafah and Khan Younes. Here, a doctor attempts to revive a 16-year-old boy whose house was targeted.
