PA health ministry sends dialysis supplies to Gaza

Jan. 10, 2012 2:34 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 10, 2012 11:06 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The PA ministry of health transferred five truckloads of medicines for kidney dialysis to the International Red Cross for delivery to the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the ministry said.

Gaza, which is under an Israeli blockade, is suffering a critical shortage of medical supplies and a Palestinian human rights group had accused the Ramallah-based ministry of holding up delivery of dialysis supplies for political reasons.

Dialysis for all renal failure patients in the blockaded strip, which include 15 children, had been stopped, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights said.

On Tuesday Ministry official Omar al-Nasr accused his Gaza counterparts of damaging the health system, due to "practices by certain groups within Hamas," pointing to the blocking of Gaza medics from attending a conference in Jerusalem in December.

The Ramallah health ministry has invited UN, WHO and Red Cross representatives to an urgent meeting with health minister Fathi Abu Moghli to discuss the medical situation in Gaza, officials said.
