Two more Palestinians die in Gaza due to inability to travel for treatment
A Palestinian citizen and a baby girl suffering serious illnesses died in Gaza on Friday evening due to the tight IOF siege that blocks travel of any Palestinian out of the Strip even for medical treatment.
Medical sources said that the 10-year-old Faten Al-Hifnawi and Musleh Kalaja were proclaimed dead after long suffering from serious illnesses.
The death of the two raised to 82 the number of victims of the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip. Hundreds other seriously ill Palestinians fear a similar fate in the event Israel continued to block their travel outside the besieged Strip.
