Newsdelivers.com, Insertlive –
Dozens of Israeli Zionist soldiers who carried out land aggression in Gaza, Palestine were reportedly affected by an outbreak of dysentery. It is said that many of the IDF soldiers experienced stomach aches and diarrhea.
Of course, this makes it difficult for the Zionist troops on the battlefield, making it easier for Hamas fighters to finish them off. Tal Brosh, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Asuta General Hospital in Ashod, said this condition could result in Zionist soldiers being unable to go to war.
“If the infection spreads among 10 soldiers in an infantry unit, and they develop fevers with body temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius, experiencing diarrhea every 20 minutes, they become unfit for combat and leave themselves vulnerable to danger,” explained Tal Brosh.
Did the disease outbreak trigger the Israeli Zionist soldiers? Here, Insertlive summarizes the 5 triggers that caused the dysentery outbreak to hit IDF soldiers.
1. Food poisoning containing Shigella bacteria
Hebrew media said the dysentery outbreak experienced by Israeli soldiers was caused by food poisoning. This case of food poisoning was said to have never happened before for Zionist soldiers serving in Gaza, Palestine.
“Diarrhea has spread among occupying forces in the south and in assembly areas, and then among soldiers fighting in Gaza,” explains Tal Brosh.
Cases of Shigella bacterial infection, which causes inflammation of the stomach and intestines, are a very serious disease among fighters in Gaza. Shigella infection can occur through direct contact between individuals or through contaminated food.
2. Dependence on donated food
There is news that says the spike in food poisoning cases among Israeli Zionist soldiers is due to increased dependence on distributed food donations. The food donations were received by IDF troops without going through the usual inspection procedures.
It was stated that since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip, Israeli citizens have consistently donated food to support their soldiers on the battlefield. However, inadequate food storage conditions can trigger the proliferation of Shigella bacteria, causing inflammation of the stomach and intestines, as well as fever.
“Anyone can participate in preparing the food, maybe a group of students or a volunteer organization. No one supervises the preparation, cooking or packaging of this food, let alone sending it to the south without refrigeration,” said Brosh, as reported.
3. Israeli military rations are not suitable for consumption
Asa, one of the reserve soldiers who served in the Israeli Zionist army, said that the dependence on donated food was because military rations were not suitable for consumption.
Hygiene conditions also triggered an outbreak of digestive diseases suffered by Israeli Zionist soldiers.
“We wash our hands diligently, but this is a challenge in this sector. In addition, it is difficult to comply with basic hygiene conditions there,” said an Israeli military spokesman.
4. Lack of Hygiene Standards Among the Israeli Military
In a recent statement, an Israeli military spokesperson acknowledged an outbreak of disease among the occupation troops, and attributed the situation to the consumption of donated food. The spokesperson explicitly emphasized that there was a health problem among soldiers.
5. Disease Outbreak in Gaza
The disease outbreak that occurred in Gaza could be caused by a hygiene crisis. As is known, Gaza is currently experiencing a clean water crisis, making hygiene problems possible.
Of course, this could result in an increase in disease outbreaks after the war in the Gaza Strip.
“Conflict can cause more deaths from disease or other indirect health impacts than from injuries resulting from trauma,” said Rebecca Katz, professor and director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University, as reported by CNN.
“Infectious diseases and other health challenges are always a concern in conflict areas. If it is difficult to maintain sanitation, then people are at risk of contracting various other diseases related to challenges related to safe drinking water and functioning wastewater systems,” he continued.
