Scores of Palestinians Are Killed and Wounded in Fresh Israeli Attacks on Gaza

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – In the Gaza Strip, at least 11 Palestinians were killed and 40 others wounded today when Israeli forces bombed al-Mawasi, an area sheltering displaced families near Gaza’s southern city of Rafah. Separately, Gaza’s Civil Defense agency said three of its medics were killed and a dozen others wounded by Israeli airstrikes as they searched for survivors of Israel’s assault on the Bureij refugee camp.

The attack on medical workers came as Israeli authorities continue to bar many Palestinians from leaving Gaza to seek medical treatment. This is Kamela Abu Kwaik, mother to 5-year-old Fayez, who urgently needs treatment for cancer after lumps spread throughout his body. On Thursday, the boy was finally granted permission to leave Gaza for treatment in Egypt, but his parents were not allowed to travel with him.

Kamela Abu Kwaik: “Why is there suffering like this? Are people’s hearts blind? Are they blind or deaf that they don’t hear or see? Have they lost their feelings? Is it OK for them to see us suffering like this? Do they not feel for these children? Malnourishment, lack of food, no capabilities, no treatments, no medication. There is no milk. There is nothing. There’s nothing. Do they want to kill us slowly? Why?”
