URGENT | VIDEO | Disabled people in Gaza suffer Israeli blockade, Egyptian closure

Sept 28, 2013

A high rate of Gaza’s population: 7,6% of Gaza’s citizens are disabled due to the years long aggression on Gaza. and suffer the siege.  Medications are limited and prohibited to travel abroad for treatment.

Disabled or chronic ill people are experiencing worsening of their physical condition and even risk permanent damage or death.

Prohibiting access to or hindering availability of medical care or supplies are a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention Art 55 and 56. 

Health is not a choice. Nor is the utter ongoing violations and disregard of inalienable human rights by Israel. Gaza’s disabled call on the international community for intervention.

We call on you to share this video as widely as possible and ask your media and representatives for action. No condemnations but true actions. For some of the ill or disabled already have been inflicted by the siege and on Sept 28, 2013 a 1 day old child died after a patient died earlier this week because he was prevented from medical treatment abroad.
