MAP response to deadly strike on Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza

In response to the deadly strike on Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza in which more than 470 people have been reportedly killed, Melanie Ward, Chief Executive of Medical Aid for Palestinians said:

"The horrifying scenes from Al Ahli demonstrate that healthcare will not be safe until there is a comprehensive ceasefire in Gaza. The international community must urgently demand that healthcare be protected, so that that medical workers be able to care for people without fear of coming under attack.

“A humanitarian catastrophe is happening right now in Gaza. Vital aid must be allowed immediately into Gaza, including food, fuel, water and medical relief. Evacuation orders affecting more than a million civilians and 25 hospitals must be rescinded, and civilians protected from attack wherever they are.

“Medical Aid for Palestinians has worked with Al Ahli Hospital over many years, and we stand in solidarity with its courageous staff and demand justice for the victims. There must be a thorough, swift and independent investigation into this and all instances of attacks on healthcare in Gaza, and those responsible must be held accountable."
