Hundreds of Palestinians performed Friday prayer in the vicinity of a hospital threatened with closure by UNRWA in Qalqilia.
The participants declared their total rejection of the UNRWA’s intention to close the hospital which provides services for Palestinian refugees in the city.
They also called for working to improve the hospital’s conditions and the UNRWA’s services allocated for more than 750,000 Palestinian refugees in the West Bank.
UNRWA had earlier declared intention to close the medical facility after the closure of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at the same hospital.
