AN EGYPTIAN DOCTOR REVEALS THE CAUSES AND COMPLICATIONS OF THE INTESTINAL DISEASE THAT AFFLICTED ISRAELI SOLDIERS IN GAZA




Doctor Muhammad al-Sherbini confirmed that the dysentery disease that afflicted Israeli soldiers in the Gaza Strip came from an infection resulting from improper health habits, such as lack of hygiene and not using disinfectants after entering the bathroom.

Two days ago, the Israeli newspaper "Ynet" reported the spread of a worrying intestinal disease among the ranks of the Israeli army, noting that about 18 soldiers had been evacuated from the Gaza Strip to receive treatment.

El-Sherbiny, a professor of gastroenterology and endoscopy at Kasr El-Aini Medicine, who was briefed on the details of the disease, revealed that other reasons stand behind the spread of infection among soldiers, such as overcrowding in camps, the presence of camps in unsanitary places, not to mention eating contaminated food.

He explained in a telephone interview via etc satellite channel that these habits may cause the transmission of a bacterial microbe that has many strains, such as โ€œShigella,โ€ which causes the patient to have bouts of recurring desire to go to the bathroom, which may occur every 5 minutes.

He added: "With diarrhea accompanied by discomfort, in addition to vomiting and high temperature, its complications include severe dehydration and disturbance of salts in the body, which paralyzes the patient's movement and makes him unable to carry out his normal tasks, and may cause coma as a result of fluid loss."

Al-Sherbiny added that this microbe may infect the nervous system, and it is a disease that is contagious from people to each other, or through incorrect health habits, lack of means of disinfection, and contaminated food.

The war is approaching the completion of its second month in Gaza, and Israeli forces continue their military operations throughout the Strip, especially in Khan Yunis in the south, amid international fears of a new humanitarian crisis.
