Violence agains healthcare in Gaza

Violence against healthcare in Gaza

Médecins du Monde France (MdM) has been working in Palestine since 1996, and more particularly in Gaza for over 16 years. A part from its medical work, MDM advocates for access to healthcare services and health-related human rights.

This year, in a period of only eleven weeks (30 March – 11 June), MDM has been witness to violent incidents against healthcare in Gaza, resulting from Israel’s response to the demonstrations taking place along its border. So far it has been reported that 328 health workers were injured, two were killed and 45 ambulances were damaged. MDM calls all actors to condemn all attacks on healthcare and to act in order to ensure the protection of health workers, patients, humanitarian workers and medical facilities.
