Gaza health ministry condemns attack on doctor

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The health ministry in the Gaza Strip on Saturday condemned Israel's killing of a Palestinian doctor overnight.

Dr Munther Qriqe, 32, a member of Shifa hospital's intensive care unit, was killed along with two others from the same family when an Israeli drone fired a missile at his car, medics said.

Qriqe was on his way home with his brother Mutaz and his young nephew Islam, the health ministry said, charging that the attack reflected Israel's "brutal escalation against medical staff."

"The Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza has increased dramatically," the ministry said in a statement early Saturday.

"Israel has crossed a red line," said ministry spokesman Dr Ashraf Alqudra.

The health ministry called for more protection for medical staff.
