Norwegian doctor to Obama: Spend one night at Gaza hospital

Published: Updated:

Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian surgeon volunteering at a Gaza hospital, has invited U.S. President Barack Obama to spend a night in Al Shifa’a Hospital to see the consequences of Israel’s deadly assault on the Palestinian enclave.


Speaking to Al Arabiya News Channel, he described the Israeli offensive as “merciless” and “murder.”


“By seeing the suffering of the children, wounds of the women, amputations … by seeing that all of this is preventable, all of this suffering is manmade by the hands of the Israeli government which is so strongly by Mr. Barack Obama and that’s why I invited him.”


Earlier this week, Gilbert invited Obama in an open letter to visit Shifa’a Hospital to see the impact of the Israeli offensive on Gaza that has so far killed more than 640 Palestinians, mostly civilians.
