The World Health Organization called on the international community to send financial aid to the Palestinian Authority to prevent a crisis in medical care within the Gaza Strip.

 

"The Palestinian Ministry of Health has reported that they are unable to maintain adequate medicine stocks due to chronic outstanding
debts, which now total more than US$ 253 million (New Israeli Sheqel 874 million)," cited the WHO.

 

The organization continued to stat that, "The Ministry of Health has only 10 days of fuel reserves to power hospitals during the frequent breaks in electric power from main lines. Half of government health workers have not received their salaries in recent months, and some can no longer afford to report for work."
