Zionist gangs block the entry of the medical supplies into the besieged territory
Human rights groups in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday asked the zionist occupation gangs to allow the entry of the medical supplies needed to fight the coronavirus pandemic into the besieged territory.
This was voiced in a press conference by Omar al-Qarout, the executive director of Hemaya Center for Human Rights, on behalf of human rights groups in the Gaza Strip.
Al-Qarout called on the zionist gangs to shoulder their legal responsibilities toward the besieged Gaza Strip and provide it with medical supplies.
Al-Qarout called on the international community to pressure the Israeli authorities to lift restrictions on the entry of medical supplies, equipment and drugs needed to deal with coronavirus into the Gaza Strip.
He also asked the World Health Organization to open a regional office in the Palestinian territories to monitor the spread of coronavirus.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the Gaza Strip is coronavirus-free while 44 Palestinians have been infected in the Occupied West Bank.
The Gaza Strip Palestinians have been living under crippling blockade for about 14 years. All border crossings connecting them with the outside world through Egypt or the Palestinian territories occupied since 1948 are closed most of the time.
