Gaza Health Workers Call on International Community to Protect Palestinian Medical Sector

HeadlineJun 25, 2024

In Gaza City, Palestinians mourned the death of two medical workers killed by Israel, including Gaza’s director of ambulance and emergency services Hani al-Jafarawi. This is Hatem al-Swerki, who works at the Ministry of Health.

Hatem al-Swerki: “We appeal to the international institutions to take a clear stance on these continuous targeted attacks, as we have lost more than 400 health professionals in the Gaza Strip, and more in detention. We lost dozens of health institutions to complete or partial destruction. We say to the world: Isn’t it time for you to stand up and to protect the Palestinian human, to protect medical crews and institutions, to respect the Palestinian ambulance badge?”

An Israeli strike in the Shati refugee camp reportedly killed 10 relatives of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, including his sister.

Meanwhile, in the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces have carried out more violent raids, and arrested another 25 people.
