Yesterday, the UAE Floating Hospital assisted injured Palestinians at the Port of Al-Arish. Healthcare professionals provided quick care to the first patients from Gaza in alignment with President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s directives. The floating hospital emphasizes the ‘Gallant Knight 3’ operation’s aim to support the people of Gaza.

A 20-year-old injured Palestinian man underwent surgery at the hospital yesterday

He sustained gunshot wounds and shrapnel and was the first surgery at the hospital. His injuries consisted of a dislocated and fractured shoulder, damaged nerves in his arm which led to his entire hand being immobile. Doctors performed a swift surgery to reposition the shoulder. However, he needs a follow-up operation in the near future to address the nerve damage.
