The hospital announced that 61 prosthetics will be delivered to the injured in several stages. In each stage, prosthetics will be fitted for 10 injured people with physical and psychological rehabilitation.

The UAE field hospital in Gaza, which was inaugurated last December, has a capacity of 200 beds and includes a medical staff of 98 volunteers from 23 nationalities, including 73 men and 25 women.
