Maltese Medical Associations express solidarity with doctors in Gaza strip

The following Maltese Medical Specialist Associations wish to express solidarity with medical doctors in the Gaza strip, who are presently working under extreme duress in the middle of a war zone; under siege; without electricity, water, and food supplies; without adequate supply of medicines and anaesthetic drugs; and surrounded by incessant bombing.

Medecins Sans Frontieres have stated that: “The situation in Gaza is catastrophic; the hospitals are overwhelmed. The number of wounded is extremely high – there is a constant influx into all the hospitals in the Gaza Strip. The medical teams are exhausted, working around the clock to treat the wounded”.

We encourage the Maltese government, as an EU member state, and Maltese representatives on UN Security Council to advocate more strongly for cessation of hostility and for full protection of medical facilities in accordance with international law on humanitarian protection.
