With his clinic destroyed during Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip, Palestinian dentist Najdat Saqr managed to retrieve equipment from the ruins and set up a tent to treat patients again.

Even though he is about to run out of anaesthesia, Saqr has just started seeing patients at the makeshift clinic he opened in a tent in Nuseirat refugee camp.

Israel has laid waste to the Gaza Strip since launching an offensive - and imposed a relentless siege - in response to the Hamas-led October 7 attack. The World Health Organization has said the health system in the Gaza Strip is barely surviving as a result.
