Gaza wounded issue demands to Palestinian Authority

Aug. 15, 2011 4:48 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 16, 2011 10:28 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A group of Gaza residents wounded during the second Intifada demanded Monday that their status and rights be recognized by the Palestinian Authority.

In a press conference held in Gaza, the group demanded that the Ramallah government recognized them as the "Second Intifada wounded," a status applied to those injured in the West Bank.

They also demanded that their physical and social needs be met as stipulated in the Palestinian constitution.

The group have received positive feedback from both West Bank and Gaza officials, they said, but are still waiting for promises to materialize.

There are plans to circulate a document which states the rights of injured Palestinians. The group aims to obtain signatures from all the wounded in Gaza.

The group said they also planned to initiate legal proceedings against the Palestinian Authority in coordination with human rights organizations "for not implementing the articles of the Palestinian Basic Law."
