Death of patient increases siege victims to 254 Palestinians

Palestinian medical sources reported that the victims of the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip rose to 254 Palestinians after the death of a 34-year-old patient called Rizq Khweiter.


The sources said that Khweiter was suffering from aortic aneurysm and spent 36 hours in hospital waiting for Israeli permission to leave Gaza for medical treatment.


The Palestinian health ministry appealed to the international community to pressure Israel to open the crossings and allow patients to receive medical treatment abroad, highlighting that the Gaza people are being exposed to genocide under the Israeli siege.
