The health ministry in the PA caretaker government has denounced the world silence over the growing number of victims of the Israeli siege imposed on the Gaza Strip that reached 124.

The ministry in a press release on Sunday wondered what the world was waiting for and what number of victims it was waiting for to act and save the patients in the Gaza Strip.

It said that the continued Zionist oppressive siege on the Strip constituted a capital punishment against thousands of patients in the absence of a serious Arab official stand towards those occupation crimes that are done under the very eyes of the world community.

The health sector is passing through a catastrophic condition, the statement said, adding that death is looming over women and children patients.

The ministry, noting that one third of the victims were children, said that more than 71% of Gaza children are suffering malnutrition.

It finally said that the few remaining medical appliances in the Gaza hospitals were on their way to permanent damage in the absence of spare parts and proper maintenance due to the Israeli siege.
