During the course of Operation Protective Edge, Israel's hospitals treated some 2,200 injured civilians and soldiers, the Health Ministry said Thursday. In addition, the hospitals treated some 1,500 people who suffered from shock when they experienced a rocket attack or some other war-related incident.
Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon treated the largest number of the injured, with 827 war-related patients under its care. Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, the largest hospital in southern Israel, treated 598 people. However, that figure included 40 of the most badly injured.
