MOH to send 3rd batch of medical aid to Palestine

The Health Ministry (MoH) is ready and has identified the medical aid team that can be deployed to the Gaza Strip, Palestine.

The ministry, however, said the team could not be deployed yet because it hasn’t received the green light due to the current war situation in the area.

It added that the team’s deployment will be made through the cooperation of the Foreign Ministry and other public agencies, as well as coordination by the International Red Crescent Movement.

“The medical team will be exposed to appropriate preparatory training as it will be involved in treating war victims,” MoH said in a statement today.

It said the third delivery of consumables and medicines will be made soon.

It said the first medical aid was sent on Nov 3 and the second on Nov 11, weighing 20 tonnes each.

The ministry said the provision of medical aid to Palestine was made through collaboration with non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the Foreign Ministry.

The assistance includes consumables like syringe pumps, sutures, intravenous cannula, dressings and bandages, neurosurgery and surgical trauma services, as well as equipment such as medical beds and suitable medicines.

It said the additional facilities were aimed at meeting the urgent and much-needed service requirements of the people in Gaza.

The MoH also stressed that the bombing of hospitals is an act that violates human rights, is inhumane; and contradicts and contravenes the Geneva Conventions.

It said such actions must be stopped immediately to allow hospitals that are still operating to continue providing medical care to injured Palestinians.

Based on information from Gaza-Medics Worldwide, of the 35 hospitals in the Gaza Strip, one-third have been destroyed, thus the need to repair and improve other medical service facilities in the hospitals that are still operating, it said. – Bernama
