GAZA, (PIC)– The Gaza health ministry warned Wednesday that the PA health ministry in Ramallah is continuing to withhold medicines required by Gaza patients.

The Gaza ministry believes the neglect to be politically motivated, calling it “political harassment at the expense of innocent Gaza patients.”

170 necessary medicines and 165 medical supplies are out of stock in the ministry’s warehouses.

The Gaza ministry called on Ramallah to dispatch the required medicines to Gaza, noting that only 37 per cent of needed medical supplies were dispatched by Ramallah in 2010.

The ministry called on rights groups to intervene in the blatant disregard of the lives of the Gazans, who have been suffering an unjust economic blockade for the past four years.
