  Gaza siege, still taking toll on the patients
Gaza, Muhammad Abu Qamar, - 2009-04-06

Barely a day passes by without being haunted by death for no fault other than being from Gaza at a time when the whole world chose to be silent on heinous crimes committed against the hapless people of Gaza for the past twenty months or so.

In March alone, 24 patients died for lack of medicines or permission to seek treatment abroad. This seems to pale in comparison to the more than 1,350 people massacred by the Israeli onslaught against Gaza and used internationally banned chemical weapons that, to this day, the wounded are still dying from.

April began with the death of a young patient women who, despite having all the documents necessary to seek treatment abroad, she was denied exit. Abeer Alagha, 25, from Khan Younis, died of severe burns she suffered during the Israeli war, and despite repeated attempts to leave the besieged enclave, and despite having the necessary documentation, she was denied permission to leave only to meet the tragic death in such a tragic way.

The Ministry of Health could only appeal to people of conscience and the entire world to stand by the besieged patients of Gaza and to pressure Israel to end its barbaric measures perpetrated against the population in broad day light.

Days pass by and the spirits of the departed patients of Gaza will one day become a curse to haunt those who perpetrated, helped, or stood passively and watched these crimes.
