Gaza: MSF teams repeatedly denied access.

“Today a Médecins sans frontières / Doctors Without Borders team was again denied permission to cross from Israel into Gaza. It is now more than ten days since the Israeli bombardment of Gaza began and the humanitarian needs are mounting, with more than 1400 people injured and tens of thousands of people displaced. The health system, which faces shortages even when there’s no bombing, is out of key materials to treat the injured such as blood bags. We still don’t know when our team will be able to cross into Gaza to join our colleagues who are already there. The crossing points need to be reopened immediately and safe passage must be facilitated for humanitarian staff and supplies to avert a greater catastrophe.” – Ely Sok, MSF Head of Mission in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
