Coronavirus in Palestine

Canadian medical doctor, Dr. Tarek Loubani, speaking to the Electronic Intifada, discussed the disastrous situation in Gaza following the coronavirus outbreak and policies of the Zionist occupation regime in Palestine. 

According to Dr. Loubani, Israeli occupation policies have created an acute shortage of basic medical supplies in Gaza spanning over several years. 

The Electronic Intifada wrote, “Michael Lynk, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on human rights in the West Bank and Gaza, affirmed that Israel, as the occupying power, is obligated under international law to guarantee basic services and health infrastructure for Palestinians. Instead, Israel has diminished the capacity of Gaza’s health system and prohibited vital supplies from entering the territory. Israel has imposed a siege on Gaza’s two million population for the past 13 years and controls the passage of goods in and out of the territory. Israel bans the import to Gaza of a long list of so-called ‘dual-use’ items which it claims may have military purposes. These include medical supplies like glycerine and hydrogen peroxide, which is used as a disinfectant. Israeli rights group Gisha is calling on Israel to suspend its blockade on Gaza and allow all necessary items to enter.”

Due to Zionist Israel’s unending brutality, the regime is unlikely to ease the siege on Gaza in these extraordinary circumstances until the virus spreads and begins to affect Israelis themselves, due to the small landmass of Palestine. Once the situation reaches that level, it will be too little, too late. Thus, the international community must act now to help Gaza.
