Thousands of Palestinians are in danger of permanent disability and infection, a new report by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said Thursday, with Gaza's health care system overwhelmed by the sheer number of patients being brought in with serious wounds.Roughly 6,000 Palestinians have been shot by Israeli forces along the Gaza border since March this year, according to Gaza's Health Ministry.MSF said in the statement it treated 3,117 patients between March 30 and Oct. 31 in Gaza.MSF expects that at least 25 percent of its patients with fractures have infections.Mohammad Abu Mughaiseeb, who has lived in Gaza since 2000 and currently works for MSF and manages the surgical programs, said the surgeons have worked for 50 hours nonstop during some periods to be able to accommodate the number of causalities.
