GAZA, (PIC)– An official at the Palestinian health ministry said that the list of medical supplies that ran out in the Gaza Strip rose to 180 types of medicines and 149 of medical disposables.
The ministry’s public relations and information director Ashraf Al-Qudra warned on Saturday that this acute shortage of medical supplies escalates the crisis and constitutes a real threat to the health work in hospitals and primary care centers.
Qudra criticized international human rights and health institutions for not moving swiftly to find radical solutions to the crisis that have plagued Gaza over the past five years and threatened the lives of patients.
He pointed out that the last victim of this crisis was five twins who suffer from lung atrophy and incomplete growth and they are in dire need for a vital injection to save their lives.
