The government information office in Gaza on Friday refuted Israeli allegations that an Israeli eight-doctor delegation arrived in Gaza ahead of expected Friday protests.
Head of the office Salama Ma’rouf said in a press statement that the medical delegation is composed of Palestinian doctors coming from the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories.
Ma’rouf explained that Israel’s efforts to beautify its image through “cheap propaganda” are a failed attempt to evade responsibility for all crimes committed against peaceful protesters in Gaza.
Gaza’s Ministry of Health announced that it had received a Palestinian medical delegation from Physicians for Human Rights organization headed by Dr. Salah Haj Yahya.
The Ministry thanked Physicians for Human Rights for responding to its call and sending a medical delegation that would help provide treatment to Gaza-based Palestinians and offer some medical training.
At least 34 Palestinians have been killed and over 3,000 injured by Israeli gunfire in the daily Return protests which started on 30th March along Gaza’s border with the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories.
