Gaza : The World Health Organization (WHO) said here Friday that Israeli authorities banned, for the fourth time in a row, the entrance of medial equipment and devices to Gaza Strip.
Director of WHO’s office in Gaza Mahmoud Al-Thakir told KUNA that Israeli authorities banned Thursday the entrance of a big truck loaded with medical equipment and devices, special computers, and spare parts for damaged medical machines damaged since months ago.
He said that it is the forth time that Israeli authorities ban the truck from entering Gaza in six months, although the Israeli government approved its entrance.
He stressed that the Israeli authorities had no reason to prevent the truck from reaching Gaza, emphasizing that the health situation in the Strip was worsening continuously.
Many important medical devices in the Strip were damaged, including a mamogram device in southern Gaza, and dozens of x-ray and dialysis machines, and other devices used to treat cardio and diabetes patients, he noted.
