Global Health: 11,000 people in Gaza need urgent medical evacuation

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that much-needed medical evacuations from the Gaza Strip, which were originally limited, stopped completely after the Israeli occupation attack Rafah about three weeks ago.

Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, said that since Israel launched its military offensive on the densely populated southern city of Rafah in early May, “there has been an abrupt halt to all medical evacuations.”

The World Health Organization estimates that “about 11,000 people need urgent evacuation to receive the necessary medical treatment elsewhere,” she said, noting that among them are more than six thousand patients suffering from psychological trauma and at least two thousand patients suffering from serious chronic diseases such as cancer.

 Since the complete cessation of medical evacuations from Gaza on May 8, a thousand patients and critically wounded have been added to that list.
