The Hamas leadership in the Gaza strip appealed to the Egyptian authorities to take serious patients from hospitals of the enclave. Radio «Kahn Beth» reported that this appeal was made after the Palestinian authority stopped issuing inhabitants of permits for treatment in Israel or abroad.
Handling Hamas says now in the hospitals sector there are hundreds of patients whose lives were at risk. However, healthcare institutions are experiencing an acute shortage of drugs, the situation is also compounded by constant interruptions in electricity supply.
The authorities of Gaza ask Egypt to accept patients at its hospitals or afford to send them to other countries through the checkpoint «Rafah».
