Gaza suffers as medical supplies run out due to Israeli sanctions.

Israel continues it’s murderous onslaught in seeking to provoke Palestinians in Gaza, hoping to lead to an invasion of Gaza.  Now we hear that medical supplies are running low in Gaza, harming the civilian population. 

“Supplies of 91 out of 416 essential drugs have run out, as have about a third of essential medical supplies, according to the Gaza ministry of health and the WHO. For example, most children’s antibiotics have run out.”

“Also, some 3,600 chronic psychiatric patients have had their treatment stopped, as over half of the needed medicines are no longer available, according to the UN Children’s Fund and WHO statistics published by the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).”

“The difficulties procuring medicines are largely related to the fiscal problems of the Palestinian Authority (PA) due to the international financial sanctions placed on the PA following the Hamas election victory in early 2006, and which were lifted in June, after the formation of a new government without the Islamic group.”

Reverend Billy, what was that about innocent Israelis?
