Body of missing Palestinian girl Hind Rajab found in destroyed car

by Al Jazeera
The body of six-year-old Hind Rajab has been found decomposing in the car where her family were killed by Israeli gunfire in Gaza City. A few metres away, the ambulance sent to rescue Hind was burnt out with the remains of two medics inside.
This is the car where missing 6-year-old Hind Rajab was trapped. Hind is one of the six decomposing bodies found in the car. The little girl had sent a plea for help to the Red Crescent on January 29 after her family members in the car had been killed by Israeli gunfire.

VOICE OF HIND RAJAB:

Come, take me.

[Red Crescent]:

Come take you?

VOICE OF HIND RAJAB:

Please, I'm scared, come quick.

Call someone to come take me, please.

[Red Crescent]:

Okay, my dear, I will come and take you.

Now a volunteer from the Red Crescent is coordinating so we can come and take you.

[GUNFIRE]

[Red Crescent]:

There's gunfire around you?

VOICE OF HIND RAJAB:

Yes, come take me.

[Red Crescent]:

My dear, I swear I want to take you, but I can't right now.

HIND'S MOTHER:

"She told me, don't leave me alone Mama, I am hungry, I am thirsty and I am wounded. I asked her where she was wounded, she told me 'I am wounded on my hand, my back and my leg'.

-

Receiving Hind's call, Red Crescent sent an ambulance to rescue her.

This is what's left of the ambulance.

KHALIL QAZAAT, Civil Defense Officer:

Right here, there's a decomposing body.

We can see a spine.

A skull here and a pelvis there.

This shows that the ambulance had been targeted and the complete disregard to international law or humanitarian norms. This is evidence to Israel's war crimes.

-

The vehicle was completely burned killing rescue workers Yusuf Zeino and Ahmed al-Madhoun. No one was able to reach the site for 12 days due to the presence of Israeli soldiers. Those troops have now withdrawn leaving behind this horrifying scene.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
