GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The minister of health in the Gaza Strip has issued instructions to shut down a pharmacy and a medical clinic in the Gaza Strip due to serious irregularities.

The pharmacy holds larges stores of medicine belonging to the ministry and UNRWA, the Palestine refugee agency, Shamieh said.
