35% of the wounded in Gaza suffer disabilities

Over 35 percent of the wounded as a result of the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip suffer from visual, hearing, or mobility impairments, the spokesman of the Palestinian health ministry said Sunday.

He added that 55 percent of the wounded are women and children who were home at the time they were attacked.

The lack of medical supplies will likely raise these figures, he said.

"The shortage in medical teams and the lack of safe exits for the wounded in Gaza will increase the number of disabilities, because most injuries are in the chest or head," he said.

According to the Palestinian ministry of health, the death toll on the 27th day of the Israeli operation in Gaza has climbed to 1766 Palestinians, and the number of wounded has reached 9300, until 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
“The truth, of course, is that a billion falsehoods told a billion times by a billion people are still false.” Travis Walton
