Gaza’s Health Ministry Warns of ‘Unprecedented’ Lack of Medical Supplies

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza yesterday warned of deterioration in conditions in its hospitals due to the unprecedented lack of medicines, Shehab.ps reported.

Fifty-two percent of basic medicines and medical supplies have now run out in the Strip, the statement said, adding that this undermines the ministry’s ability to offer its services.

The Ministry of Health in Ramallah has not dispatched any shipment of medicines or medical supplies to the Gaza hospitals and has reduced the number of patient transfers to the Israeli hospitals without offering alternatives, the statement continued.
