Amira Al-Assouli... Palestinian Physician Defies Israeli Bullets to Save an Injured Person Featured


A Heroic Act

There is a video circulating on social media that shows a remarkable act of bravery. Dr. Amira Al-Assouli, a Palestinian doctor, risked her life to save an injured young man in Khan Yunis, a city in the Gaza Strip. The video captures the moment when Dr. Al-Assouli, with bullets flying around her, rushed to rescue the wounded man lying on the ground.

Working Against All Odds

Despite being displaced from her own home, which was destroyed by the Israeli army, Dr. Al-Assouli continues her important work at the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Yunis. This dedicated doctor did not hesitate to help the injured man, even though the Israeli army has previously targeted paramedics.

International Support Needed

The Nasser Medical Complex and Al-Amal Hospital, both vital healthcare facilities, have been under siege by the Israeli army for 20 days. Gunfire and constant targeting have put the lives of medical personnel and patients at risk. The Palestinian Ministry of Health has called on international organizations to intervene and protect the complex and everyone inside it.

A Devastating Situation

Since January 22, the Israeli army has been conducting intense raids in Khan Yunis, including near hospitals. This has forced thousands of Palestinians to flee the area. The ongoing conflict, which began on October 7, 2023, has resulted in numerous civilian casualties, including many children and women. The destruction of infrastructure has led to a humanitarian crisis, and Israel is facing charges of genocide at the International Court of Justice.
