Egypt doctors who returned from the hell of the city of Misrata in
Libya, which has been under siege by brigades loyal to Libya’s Colonel
Muammar Gaddafi for nearly one month, reported that conditions in the
city are catastrophic.
They also relay that food supplies have run out and the port there is under continuous attack, preventing any supplies from reaching the city.
Meanwhile, Gaddafi’s brigades are targeting civilians, mosques, hospitals and ambulances with missiles and snipers, as well as random attacks using cluster bombs, banned weapons and booby-trap corpses in its war against unarmed civilians.
He added that several organisations and countries have offered assistance in this endeavour, including sending mobile hospitals to solve the problems of remoteness in Libya and enable them to save the lives of patients who die because hospitals are too far away.
They arrived to an avalanche of bullets, which did not distinguish between child, woman or old man and targeted civilians.
The medics revealed that hospitals were severely deficient and that most of them had been destroyed.
They reported that they operated on victims who were close to death under very harsh and difficult conditions, and at times had to operate on several patients at once in dim lighting and unfit locations.
They added that food supplies in the city have run out, to the extent that their Libyan hosts were unable to give them breakfast on the last day – although Libyans are well known for their generosity.
