A senior official at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza has warned that the cardiac catheterization unit at the hospital will stop providing vital services for its patients soon after its storage of main medical supplies has almost run out.

In press remarks to al-Ray news agency, head of the hospital’s cardiac cath unit Mohamed Habib stated that important medical items used in cardiac catheterization at the hospital will run out completely in the coming weeks.

Habib appealed to all concerned parties to supply the hospital’s catheterization unit with its medical needs to continue providing services for the patients and alleviate their suffering.

Al-Shifa Hospital’s catheterization unit conducts about 1,500 therapeutic and diagnostic procedures every year at a rate of 150 operations a month.
