The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qudra, said that 50 patients, including 4 kidney patients and 3 premature babies, were martyred in the past days due to the running out of medicines and the Israeli occupation forces’ siege of hospitals.
He stressed that the depletion of fuel and the power outage caused the death of 20 intensive care patients due to the cessation of life support, stressing that 35 kidney failure patients had not received treatment for a week.
He added that the occupation forces must provide a safe passage that allows the entry of living and medical supplies and fuel to the hospitals they are besieging in the northern Gaza Strip, especially Shifa.
