Rabaa Al-Adaweya Field Hospital Statement on Violent Storming of Facility by Armed Forces
Rabaa Al-Adaweya Field Hospital Statement on Violent Storming of Facility by Armed Forces
In an attempt to destroy some of the massive physical evidence of their war crimes and savagery, heavily armed security forces stormed the field hospital and reportedly torched the whole facility with dead and injured citizens still inside.
Wednesday, August 14,2013 20:44

At 5:15pm today (Wednesday, August 14) the Rabaa Al-Adaweya field hospital building was stormed by the Central Security Forces and special forces units, in cooperation with the army, after shooting heavily and directly at the facility using live bullets, birdshot and gas bombs, causing serious injuries, doubling the number of suffocation victims, and preventing us from performing our humanitarian and professional mission. We had to leave the hospital.

While we acknowledge that what happened is an utterly heinous crime, we hold the terrorist leaders of the military coup and the ministers of interior and defense in the putschist government fully responsible.

We also note that at the time of the intrusion, the hospital – which occupies six floors in a building near the square, as well as several spacious halls attached to the mosque – was packed full of thousands of dead and injured citizens, due to a siege of the hospital by security forces who prevented ambulances from coming through, since the beginning of the violent crackdown.

We warn the attacking forces against interfering with the dead or injured for the purpose of hiding the evidence of their heinous crimes. In this regard, we affirm that we have documented all cases of death and injury, and that we will make those public to the whole world.
