400 Gaza patients face imminent death
Quote:The Palestinian Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip has announced that 400 ICU patients are facing imminent death due to the ongoing Israeli blockade.

The Ministry said that the 400 patients in Intensive Care Units are in critical condition as hospitals and medical centers lack basic supplies and equipment.

It moreover demanded that human rights groups and international heath organizations intervene in order to end the Israeli siege and allow entry of medical supplies and equipment, the International Middle East Media Center reported.

The Ministry also stated that hundreds of patients are in urgent need of relocation to hospitals outside the Gaza Strip.

The blockade, which Israel first imposed on the impoverished territory in June 2007, has caused a humanitarian crisis among the Strip's 1.5 million inhabitants.

According to Health Ministry reports, nearly 400 patients, most of them children and the elderly, have died as a result of the ongoing siege, while hundreds still await transfer to hospitals abroad.
