UN staffer recounts mission to Gaza City: Never seen ‘such extreme suffering’

Jake Morland of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said he had never before been confronted with “such extreme suffering” as witnessed in Gaza City.

In a video interview, Morland recounts a mission to Gaza City in December to evacuate 12 critically injured patients from the Ahli Hospital.

  • “As we entered the hospital, we saw wagons driven by five, six-year-old children, donkey carts, being driven into the hospital compound with their dying parents on the wagon behind,” Morland recounts in the video, released on social media by the UN.
