ISRAEL BANS CARBON DIOXIDE DELIVERY TO GAZA HOSPITALS

Israel banned anaesthetic gas from entering the Gaza Strip last month

WHO called for the Israeli occupation to maintain the humanitarian needs of the Gaza residents far away from the strict siege has been in place for more than ten years

Israeli occupation has prevented delivery of carbon dioxide to the Palestinian hospitals in Gaza Strip, Palestinian ministry of health said on Wednesday.

According to a statement by the ministry of health, the stock of carbon dioxide needed for fridges and ventilators and many other medical equipment is running out soon.

“This will worsen the already bad condition of the healthcare sector,” the statement said, stressing that many of the medical facilities would shut down.

Therefore, the statement added, many of scheduled laparoscopic and ophthalmic surgeries would not be carried out.

World Health Organisation (WHO) stated that it had been trying to put pressure on Israel in order to resume delivering this necessary gas.

Gaza hospitals, WHO said, consume approximately between 150 to 200 kilograms of carbon dioxide every month.

The international body called for the Israeli occupation to maintain the humanitarian needs of the Gaza residents far away from the strict siege has been in place for more than ten years.

Who has called for keeping humanitarian issues aside from political conflicts to save lives of patients and heal their pain.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.


Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
