 The Arab Doctors Union has warned that a health disaster would imminently befall the Gaza Strip and neighboring countries if urgent assistance was not expedited to the besieged Strip.

An ADU statement said that the siege would lead to spread of epidemics in the light of the lack of necessary vaccines and adequate potable water.

Meanwhile, demonstrations hit the streets of Istanbul and Amman on Friday demanding an immediate end to the siege on Gaza.

Thousands of Turkish worshippers took part in the Istanbul demonstration after the Friday congregation and warned of a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza.

A massive demonstration in Amman and a similar one in northern Jordan called on Egypt to open the Rafah border terminal with Gaza and denounced the Arab and Islamic silence vis-à-vis the suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
