The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Warns of Crisis in Gaza Due to Shortage of Medicines
The OIC stated that there is shortage of more than 305 medications out of 478, in addition to the shortage of medical supplies and most of the humanitarian needs.
The report also stated that there is an urgent need to provide shelter for the Palestinian citizens whose houses had been destroyed during Israel’s recent war on Gaza.
It called the OIC member states and the humanitarian organizations to prepare a program and an urgent plan to cope with the dire situation in Gaza, particularly in the health sector, and to support the Gaza reconstruction projects.
The OIC report revealed that the Israeli occupation authorities have continued to put restrictions on the commercial traffic in and out of the Gaza Strip, through imposing a total ban on the supply of construction materials to the Strip, except for limited quantities for the benefit of international organizations’ projects.
