GAZA, (PIC)– The European hospital of Gaza welcomed a medical delegation from Australia and Italy specializing in knee surgery on an eight-day visit to the Strip.

“The medical team will contribute to alleviating the impact of the siege on Gaza’s patients. They will provide a high level of medical service to them and save them the trouble of traveling abroad and high costs,” said hospital director Abdel Latif Al Hajj.

Heading the delegation, Dr. Patrick Keenan said he was happy to visit Gaza. “We came here to relieve Gaza Strip patients in light of the suffering they are experiencing here.”

Dr. Keenan previously operated on Palestinian patients during the Jenin massacre in the West Bank.
