Health in Gaza warns of the closure of hospitals and the only oxygen station in the Strip

Today, Wednesday, the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip warned that hospitals, health centers and the only oxygen station in the Gaza Governorate, which supplies health facilities and chronic patients with oxygen, would stop.


The Ministry confirmed in a statement that this would expose the lives of dozens of sick and wounded people to inevitable death, in addition to exposing the medicines in the refrigerators to damage due to the lack of diesel fuel to operate the generator feeding the oxygen station and the refrigerators for storing medicines.


The Ministry of Health appeals to all concerned, international and humanitarian institutions to intervene quickly to bring in the necessary fuel, in addition to the electric generators and spare parts needed for maintenance.
