Gaza: Recent PA-Israeli measures claimed lives of 16 patients

PA-Israel against Gaza

The Palestinian health ministry in Gaza on Saturday said that the recent punitive measures that were taken by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel against the impoverished territory led to the death of 16 patients.

Spokesman for the health ministry Ashraf al-Qudra stated in press remarks that the reciprocal measures that were taken recently by the PA and Israel targeted the health sector and affected the sustainability of its services.

Qudra affirmed that “the patients in Gaza have become exposed to a compound risk resulting from the crises of medicines, medical referrals and electricity.”

He stressed the need for urgent and active action against those measures from the Palestinian factions and human rights and media institutions in order to save the lives of patients in Gaza.
