TEHRAN, Apr. 21 (MNA) – Palestinian civil defense teams have unearthed a mass grave at the Nasser hospital in Khan Yunis two weeks after the withdrawal of Israeli forces from the southern Gaza city.

In a statement released on Saturday, Gaza's civil defense agency said the bodies of 50 Palestinians, who had been killed by the Israeli occupation forces, were retrieved from the mass grave.

“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,” it added.

Israeli forces raided the Nasser hospital and killed dozens of people who were sheltering at the medical complex back in February following days of intense bombardment.

They attacked Khan Yunis – the Gaza Strip’s second-largest city - in early December, forcing residents to flee their homes.

On April 7, the Israeli military said that it had withdrawn its ground forces from Khan Yunis. Since then, displaced Palestinians have been returning to their homes after months of Israeli attacks, which left much of the city in ruins. 

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 34,049 Palestinians, mostly women, and children, and injured 76,901 others.
