Palestinavenn Mads Gilbert (61) fra Tromsø og legekollega Erik Fosse er blant de eneste vestlige stemmene i bomberegnet i Gaza. Fra Shifa-sykehuset i Gaza by rapporterer de jevnlig hva de ser og opplever til millioner av TV-seere.
De egentlige journalistene er sperret ute.
I den andedammen Dagbladet befinner seg, er kanskje Mads Gilbert og Erik Fosse de eneste vestlige stemmene. Men det finnes flere. Som International Herald Tribune. De kan også fortelle oss en historie fra Shifa-sykehuset. Som Mads Gilbert aldri kommer til å fortelle oss.
At Shifa Hospital on Monday, armed Hamas militants in civilian clothes roved the halls. Asked their function, they said they were providing security. But there was internal bloodletting under way.Hvem fikk skylden for å drept disse 6 palestinerne tro?
In the fourth floor orthopedic section, a woman in her late twenties asked a militant to let her see Saleh Hajoj, her 32-year-old husband. She was turned away and left the hospital. Fifteen minutes later, Hajoj was carried out of his room by young men pretending to transfer him to another hospital section. As he lay on the stretcher, he was shot in the left side of the head. A bit of brain emerged on the other side of his skull.
Hajoj, like five others who were killed at the hospital in this way in the previous 24 hours, was accused of collaboration with Israel. He had been in the central prison awaiting trial by Hamas judges, and when Israel destroyed the prison on Sunday he and the others were transferred to the hospital. But their trials were short-circuited.
