Gaza, "Completely Abandoned"

MSF said Gaza had been "completely abandoned" over the past 12 months of rallies, and that "the more than 6,500 people shot by Israeli forces during the protests have been largely left to their fate."

According to the medical charity, the vast majority of those injured had suffered leg wounds.

"These are not simple wounds that can be easily stitched up. Huge chunks of legs have been blown out and the bones within shattered," the group said. 

At the moment, Gaza does not have the capacity to treat all of its patients. 
"We have a situation where the health system is overwhelmed, although MSF is doing all it can, we also won't be able to treat all those patients," Melki said.
