Bodies of 50 Palestinians found in mass grave in Gaza’s Khan Younis

Emergency services in Gaza have retrieved the bodies of 50 Palestinians from a mass grave at the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis, according to local media, two weeks after Israeli forces withdrew from the area.

“Today, our teams in the Khan Younis Governorate uncovered the bodies of 50 martyrs from different age groups who were collected by the occupation forces and buried collectively at Nasser Hospital,” the Palestinian Civil Defence Administration said in a statement.

The service said, “Our teams continue their search and retrieval operations for the remaining martyrs in the coming days as there are still a significant number of them.”

The discovery comes after the Israeli military withdrew its troops from the southern city on April 7. Much of the city is now in ruins after months of relentless Israeli bombardment and heavy fighting.

At least 34,049 Palestinians have been killed and 76,901 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
