As Israel prepares for a potential military operation in the Gaza Strip following a Hamas attack, the Palestinian territory is grappling with an escalating humanitarian crisis.
A shocking video has emerged from Nexta, showing an ice cream truck being used as a makeshift morgue due to the overwhelming number of casualties.
Grim reality in Gaza
The Israeli Armed Forces have advised nearly half of Gaza's two million residents to move south, warning of impending military actions against Hamas.
Despite this, the Palestinian organization has forbidden residents from leaving their homes. The latest figures reveal that around 2,750 Palestinians have been killed in retaliatory actions by Israel. Experts estimate that up to a thousand more could be trapped under the rubble of destroyed buildings.
As the crisis deepens, thousands of Israeli reservists have been summoned to the Gaza border, indicating that a military incursion into Palestinian territories may be imminent.
Desperation leads to unthinkable measures
With morgues running out of space, Palestinians are resorting to desperate measures. A chilling video has gone viral, showing ice cream vans being used to store bodies. The grim scene is made even more unsettling by the presence of an advertisement featuring a smiling child on one of these vans.
