Umm Mohammed Abu Sada uses her headscarf to block the stench of bodies, some of which have been lying outside for days.
"The smell of bodies knocks people down. It is horrible to see human bodies thrown onto the streets like that," she said. "The missiles are hitting everyone. There is nowhere for us to seek shelter."
Corpses of Palestinians have overwhelmed morgues at Rafah's hospitals, and some relatives have been left with no option but to keep their loved ones in commercial refrigerators. At the city's Kuwaiti hospital on Monday, ambulances negotiated their way through crowds of medical staff and families, delivering bodies to be laid out on the gravel outside the building.
Many of the dead have no one to bury them except distant relatives, as Israeli airstrikes on Rafah have killed multiple family members.
On Saturday four members of Mohammed Ayyad Abu Taha's family were killed when Israel struck their home, including two children and one woman, and on Sunday an Israeli airstrike on a home in Rafah killed eight members of the Ghoul family, including two women and three children (ages 1 month, 3 years and 13 years), according to U.N. figures.
