Yesterday the Red Cross provided emergency supplies to Gaza's ministry of health.
Geneva/Jerusalem (ICRC) – The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) today supplied the Ministry of Health in Gaza with 150,000 litres of diesel. The fuel will help 13 public hospitals maintain essential health services for the next 10 days.
"The lack of fuel restricts the functioning of vital public services, especially hospitals," said Irfan Sulejmani, the head of the ICRC sub-delegation in Gaza. "Without these emergency supplies, the treatment of thousands of patients could be interrupted and lives endangered."
In the past few years, Gaza has faced continuous shortages of electricity. The situation worsened when the only power station in the Strip was shut down last week. more
