The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PCRS) said on Tuesday that it lost contact with a team of paramedics who went to rescue a 6-year-old girl who was trapped inside a vehicle in Gaza. 

On Monday, PCRS reported that Israeli occupation forces had surrounded a 6-year-old girl named Hind inside a vehicle in the Fares Gas Station area in Gaza City, after targeting her family.

In a post on X, PCRS said that the fate of the paramedics is still unknown.

Earlier on Monday, Israeli occupation forces surrounded a 6-year-old girl named Hind inside a vehicle in the Fares Gas Station area in Gaza City, after targeting her family.

PCRS reported that Hind was with the family of her mother’s uncle, Bashar Hamada, when Israeli occupation forces opened fire at the vehicle in which they were traveling.

Six of the girl’s family members were killed in the attack and Hind was the sole survivor in the vehicle, according to the PRCS.

Meanwhile, the rest of the family, along with Hind, are still trapped inside.

“Hind remained for hours pleading for our teams to reach her and evacuate her from the area surrounded by Israeli tanks,” PRCS wrote in another post on Monday.

“Around 6:00 PM, our teams reached the area where Hind was trapped inside the vehicle, which had been shot near the Fares petrol station in Gaza. Since then, we lost contact with the team, and as of now, we are uncertain if our teams successfully reached the girl,” PRCS continued.

On Tuesday, PRCS announced that the fate of the paramedics who went to rescue Hind was still unknown.

“As of now, contact is still lost with our colleagues who embarked yesterday on the mission to rescue Hind, the 6-year-old girl,” PCRS wrote on X, adding:

“We remain unaware of their fate and whether they succeeded in evacuating her or not. Our prayers for their safety—Ahmed, Yousef, and little Hind”.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 26,637 Palestinians have been killed, and 65,387 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
